Since the 1930’s, Seattle Garden Club continues to support significant Washington Park Arboretum projects in partnership with the Arboretum Foundation. The most recent completed in 2017 to celebrate our Centennial Year, the “Azalea Way Centennial Garden”.
Rainier Beach Urban Farm & Wetlands
The Rainier Beach Urban Farm & Wetlands (RBUFW) is Seattle’s largest urban farm. Community members of all ages volunteer and participate in our educational programs, learning to grow food organically and restore the natural wetlands habitat that runs down the middle of the farm, while supplying fresh food for the community.
Seattle Children’s PlayGarden
The Seattle Children’s PlayGarden is a space where children of all abilities can play outdoors and stretch their imaginations and independence: kids on two feet, kids with walkers, kids in wheelchairs, kids who communicate differently. A welcoming place where children with special needs can play along side their typically developing siblings and friends.
U of W Botanic Gardens – Fragrance Garden
The Seattle Garden Club Fragrance Garden greets visitors with tantalizing smells and colorful flowers at the entry to the Center for Urban Horticulture. Robert Chittock’s design transformed the former Entry Shade Garden to the Fragrance Garden in 2007.
This is a garden for the senses. Come sit on one of the garden’s five benches and feel the afternoon light on your back. Watch songbirds splash in the basalt birdbath. Close your eyes and listen to the Soest Garden fountain cascade into its basin. Breathe deep and take in the garden’s rich, diverse aromas.
Bellevue Botanical Gardens
Is an urban refuge, encompassing 53-acres of cultivated gardens, restored woodlands, and natural wetlands. The living collections showcase plants that thrive in the Pacific Northwest.
