NW Flower & Garden Show – Get a Jump on Spring

February 7th, 2013 by Arboretum Education Supervisor, Patrick Mulligan

Please stop by the UWBG booth and say “hello” at the Northwest Flower & Garden Show this year. We’ve got a great corner spot at booth #2304 in the Community Organizations area. New for this year, we’re combining forces with Seattle Parks & Recreation to create a “mega-booth” connected by a wedding arbor being built by the city’s carpenter crew. During the show, we’ll be highlighting our Rental Program, so look for lots of pretty pictures of events at our rental sites at the Center for Urban Horticulture and the Graham Visitors Center.

graphicFor a fantastic evening out why not attend the Tuesday evening Preview Party hosted by the Arboretum Foundation? You can bid on unique items in the silent auction, stroll the display gardens before the crowds arrive, sip wine and enjoy a dessert buffet. This fund raiser for the Arboretum is always a fun time. Tickets on sale now.
