If gardening, soaking up the great outdoors from a gorgeous patio, or enjoying the arts is your pleasure, be sure to participate in the Fourth Annual Mill Creek Garden Tour 2018 & Artisan Market that will tour SIX beautiful gardens.
The event takes you “behind the garden gate” into interesting gardens to explore - which includes a little walking, a little sightseeing, a little socializing and ideas galore. Meander through the showcased yards in Cypress, Evergreen, Fairway, Juniper, River Crossing and Scarborough (just east of Mill Creek).
BRAND NEW this year will be the addition of an Artisan Market in EACH garden, which will consist of local artisans selling their handcrafted, garden-inspired wares. Look for metal sculptures, nature-inspired pottery, fused glass creations, handmade stepping stones, mosaic art, recycled-wood garden art, glass garden art and even some plants! A percentage of the proceeds will be given back to Mill Creek Garden Club for our Grant Program.
All proceeds from the event, including ticket sales, go to The Garden Club's Grant Program. This year alone they were able to award a grand total of $4,700 to local organizations: including Farmer Frog (farmerfrog.org), two local schools and a non-profit community care garden which provides fresh grown produce to the Mill Creek Food Bank and others in our community. The Mill Creek Garden Club would love to award even more next year and you can help with that!
Tickets may be purchased in advance for $15 for all ages. Tickets are available at Artisan Custom Framing, Li’l Sprout Nursery, Sunnyside Nursery, Snohomish Garden Center, Sky Nursery, Molbak’s and McAuliffe’s Valley Nursery. They can also be purchased the day of the tour for $20, only available at Li'l Sprout Nursery - so get your tickets early!
