Even as we prepare to step into fall, one of the most beautiful events of every WS summer needs you – and asked us to share this one more time:
Dear West Seattle Gardeners,
The West Seattle Garden Tour, a non-profit organization, is looking for new members to join our organization. 2007/2008 will be the 14th anniversary for WSGT and we are looking forward to another exciting tour year!
What we do:
The WS Garden Tour is a registered 501c3 non-profit philanthropic organization. Funds raised by the tour are used to pay for printing our posters, ticketbooks, etc. and other operational costs. All profit then goes to selected horticulturally-related projects/non-profits/gardens for the betterment of our community. Ticket purchases directly positively impact our communityÃ¢â‚¬â€œboth by bringing another garden tour and by funding important projects in our neighborhoods!
The Garden tour membership committee meets once a month to review the steady, building progress of the tour, which is slated this year for the last week of July, 2008. The Tour is comprised of 8 gardens, carefully chosen during the months of August-October, to be highlighted for tour visits during the following July. We assemble at an appointed memberÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s home at 6:30 pm on the 2nd Wednesday of each month, where we engage in a pot-luck feast, followed by the business of moving the garden tour forward.
We have a great many opportunities for garden enthusiasts, and you certainly donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t need to be a Master Gardener to join!
Here are just a few of the committee opportunities available this year for those new members interested in joining:
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Garden Selection committee
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Volunteer committee
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Sponsorship committee (comprised of 5 subcommittees).
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Beneficiary committee
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Public Relations committee
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Graphic Design committee
How do I get started?
If you are interested in becoming part of WSGT, please call Clay Swidler at: (206) 669-4653 for more information. The next meeting is on Wednesday, October 10th.
