This year’s tour will feature four stunning properties and the historic Mukai Farm and Garden that truly capture the beauty of Vashon, thanks to the love, ingenuity, and mastery of the garden hosts. In addition, there will be a wonderful garden-inspired visual arts exhibition at Vashon Center for the Arts, specially curated by Georgetown’s own Studio E. Plus, there will be a Garden Tour raffle with many wonderful prizes, as well as the official unveiling of the VCA native ecology field, which is being restored from an overgrown blackberry bramble over these many months to reflect the natural plant life on the island and complement the beauty of the Annual VCA Garden Tour.
We are grateful to Ilse Reimnitz for her generous donation of Roses, the beautiful painting featured on this years marketing.
