    In it’s prior iteration, this was the Burien Garden Tour, founded in 1996 — one year before the Highline Botanical Garden was founded. http://www.highlinegarden.org

    As the 9 year garden writer for the Robinson Newspapers I always advised: go on garden tours — you can learn a lot, including what NOT to do!
