Whidbey Island Garden Tour digs up money to hand out to nonprofit groups

The Whidbey Island Garden Tour is seeking qualified grant applicants to receive funding from the upcoming June 23, 2012 tour.

Every year, proceeds from the annual Whidbey Island Garden Tour are donated to local non-profits and programs that promote the improvement, restoration and maintenance of our common habitat.

The grants this year will focus on projects of $3,000 or more or $1,000 or less. Projects that emphasize public space enhancement and education are of particular interest to the WIGT board. For more information go to or contact Beneficiaries Coordinator Sarah Birger at
