The Day of Tour, June 9th, will find the Headquarters (GT HQ), ticket sales, Tour maps and local businesses and non-profits at the SE corner of 23rd & E Union. We are excited that the Big Easy food truck, Cascade Edible Landscape plant sale, and Union Biscuit will join us. We will also have music and local performing artists from Mt. Calvary Church, Meter Music School and UmojaFest. Once you’ve toured the gardens and purchased plants, dog treats and lunch, check out the Leschi Art Walk on Lakeside Avenue.

The proceeds, both funds raised and matching grant monies, go toward creating public art in the Central District. That project began in late 2010 and is rolling right along. We hope to recruit local artists, including students and kids, to create kiosks, banners and/or public art pieces to be placed in the Central District. We intend to begin with an information kiosk/gathering place near 23rd & Union and/or Cherry.

For their donations, sponsors will get one of two sizes of ads on the Tour ticket/map, an ad or link on this Garden Tour website and a booth at GT HQ. Either CDNA or CD Association can provide tax receipts for cash and in-kind donations.
