Mount Baker Garden tour a huge success!
For those who visited the amazing gardens in Mount Baker last Saturday, we would like to thank you for sharing your enthusiasm and community spirit. The garden owners, the volunteers and all the visitors made the day a very successful one. We hope to be back with another tour in 2018
The gardens on the tour were beautiful and varied, set in one of Seattle’s best-kept secrets: the Mount Baker neighborhood. Along the shores of Lake Washington, south of I-90, many Mount Baker parks and boulevards were laid out by John Charles Olmsted. Stately homes in the neighborhood date from the turn of the 20th century, when Seattle was a young, fast-growing city.
The proceeds from the tour raised funds for the Mount Baker Community Club.
It was a whirlwind 48 hours, and we were blown away by the support we saw from the MBCC community (that's you) to support our programs through GiveBIG. Despite all odds, you showed your commitment to building strong community connections by donating $15,310 in just two days!
Thank you to all who made this possible. We couldn't have done it without your incredible generosity. We are proud to partner with you, to be the "Heart of Mount Baker"!
Best of all, we have officially met the Board's challenge match of $10,000!
Bicycle or walk along Lake Washington Boulevard south of Mount Baker Beach to Seward Park's entrance.
