Thanks for supporting the 2013 West Seattle Garden Tour!
Our 19th Annual West Seattle Garden Tour was held on Sunday, July 21 this year. The gardens, the crowds and the weather were spectacular. We want to thank all of our gardeners, volunteers, sponsors, ticket outlets and beneficiaries for another tremendous effort! And we especially want to thank all of you who came out to enjoy the gardens this year — your participation is what makes all the work worthwhile.
The West Seattle Garden Tour (WSGT) is a fun, family-friendly event that has been an annual tradition since 1995. We are a 100% volunteer organization and a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit. We donate net proceeds of the tour to local community gardens and other non-profits that promote horticulture, education or the arts. Check out the beneficiaries of this year's tour on our Beneficiaries page.
The tour is quite a lot of work and we rely on friends, neighbors and community to volunteer to help. If you'd like to come to one of our monthly meetings, just send an email to Clay Swidler and he'll be sure to add you to the distribution list so you know where the meeting is. Our meetings are always held on the second Wednesday of the month.
The Tour welcomes and thanks our 2013 Sponsors! Their generous contributions benefit a wide variety of artistic educational and horticultural projects in our community.
