The twelfth annual Woodinville Garden Club Tour of Gardens features six private gardens that offer serenity to grandeur and everything in between. On Saturday, July 16, you’ll find meandering paths and streams, secret gardens and tranquil ponds with koi. Lush ornamentals, robust veggies and stunning specimen trees showcase our region’s diverse planting palette. Come get inspired by entertainment spaces that make the most of outdoor living.

The Woodinville Garden Club was established in 1984 as a community organization, whose mission is to offer enrichment through learning about horticulture, participating in civic beautification and enjoying friendships as we pursue these activities. 

The Tour of Gardens was organized to showcase the diverse beauty and design of local gardens.  A portion of the proceeds of the tour and the club’s other annual fundraiser, the plant sale at Chateau Ste. Michelle, are used to fund ongoing civic projects, including civic beautification, horticulture scholarships and educational activities.

This year’s contributions include a donation to Seattle Children’s Playgarden for a washer and dryer and two $2000 scholarships for students of horticulture. We are also working with the City of Woodinville on a project to beautify the playing fields at Carol Edwards Center and to honor Carol Edward’s legacy to the city.   We anticipate completion in the next year.
