The 18th annual Whidbey Island Garden Tour earned more than $16,300, and nearly 800 people visited four of Whidbey Island’s most beautiful gardens.

Many thanks to garden owners, Greg and Diane Stone, Ellen and John Welsch, Tom and Sharon Vos, and Linda Walsh for creating such beauty and allowing us to share your love of gardening, of creating soothing space, and of joyous bounty.

Thanks also to the garden selection committee, Pat Smith, Monica Shull, Janey Parlier and Nancy Andrews.

And thank you to the hundred-plus volunteers who made this such a successful event. We couldn’t do it without you.

A special thanks to garden visitors and to our generous patrons and friends.

Nine Whidbey Island groups benefited from the proceeds of the tour. The recipients will be able to continue to do the work of educating all of us in “the preservation and thoughtful use of our shared physical environment,” which is the purpose of the Whidbey Island Garden Tour.
