The Heronswood Garden Open & Plant Sale is being hosted by the Port Gamble S’Klallam Foundation, which is dedicated to improving the quality of life for tribal members while increasing the understanding of PGST’s rich cultural heritage among people in the Puget Sound.
Heronswood provides a unique opportunity to further an appreciation of tribal art, history, and culture, while stressing the Tribe’s commitment to education and environmental stewardship. The day’s event will also feature tribal artisans selling their work, performances by the S’Klallam Singers, and local vendors will be set up to sell food to visitors and participants.
In addition to a plant market featuring specialty vendors from throughout the Pacific Northwest, attendees will be able to tour the garden and witness the remarkable restoration underway. Lectures will be offered by master plantsman and Heronswood co-founder, Dan Hinkley at 11:30am and 2:30pm; Nita-Jo Rountree will speak at 1:00pm on Hydrangeas; re-establishing the garden’s remarkable hydrangea collection is a particular focus in the renovation project. Suggested $10 donation to tour the garden; lectures are free with limited seating.
