On Saturday, August 28 at 1:00 PM, the Sequim Botanical Garden Society invites you to their “Work to Learn” Party Presentation on Plants for Arid Summers with Elaine Webber to learn about Sequim-friendly plants at the Terrace Garden in Carrie Blake Community Park. This presentation will cover the vast varieties of plants that actually thrive in arid summers, require little water, and are easy to grow. It will include information on lavender, sedum, and plants native to Sequim. Elaine will share her experience on how to plan a yard and landscaping that will thrive instead of perish during periods of drought.

On August 28, look for yellow signs and you will find parking near the water reuse entrance on Blake Avenue and Fir Street that is near the band shell in the park. These “Work to Learn” Parties are an opportunity for novice and seasoned gardeners to volunteer together to cultivate what makes our community exceptional and flourishing. You don’t have to get in the dirt to learn, but if you want to help please bring your gardening gloves, your tools, sunscreen, and hats and come mingle with other members of the community dedicated to growing a botanical garden that will enchant and educate visitors.

The Sequim Botanical Garden Society is a volunteer partner with the City of Sequim and a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We provide educational information and a visual demonstration of what can be done in home gardening with research-based horticultural practices. The Terrace Garden is located near the band shell in Carrie Blake Community Park. Connect with us online or via email for inspiring and educational volunteer opportunities in the garden.
