The West Seattle Nursery Summer Festival is a series of events including an open house, in-person classes and a one-time sale starting August 15.

“It’s been 2 and a half years since we organized an open day, and more than that since we organized classes at the crèche. On top of that, we haven’t had the opportunity to recognize officially that Marcia Bruno bought the crèche in October 2019!”

The open house is scheduled for August 28 with a short presentation to reintroduce Marcia and followed by a fabulous food distribution for visitors.

From August 15th to September 15th they will be presenting their summer clearance sale with savings of up to 50% on plants, gifts and garden accessories.

Classes will take place in an outdoor classroom equipped to protect from the sun or rain. There’s something for everyone – from Do it yourselfdemos to General interest gardeningto Indigenous peoples-native plants series of interviews. Looked!
