Join us in the garden on Sunday, August 16th for our annual Ice Cream Social.

This year’s Celebrity Guest will again be Ciscoe Morris, who hosts “Gardening with Ciscoe” on KIRO 97.3 FM radio and KING 5/NWCN television, as well and is the author of the best-selling garden tome, “Ask Ciscoe” as well as a weekly column in the Seattle Times.

Ciscoe’s topic will be “…And This Is Also My Favorite Plant…”
