First-ever Westside Plant & Garden Art Fair: See the lineup!

(Otherwise charming garden photo originally provided to WSB to illustrate this now three-year-old event announcement has been removed by site owners under protest following threats from lawyer claiming that those who provided it were not authorized to do so.)

Lots of excitement back in February when the first-ever Westside Plant and Garden Art Fair was announced. Now, it’s just a few weeks away, and organizers have sent the highlights of what you’ll find during the event, 10 am-4 pm Saturday, April 30th, and 11 am-3 pm Sunday, May 1st:

This community event will be held at the Westside Unitarian Universalist Church, 7141 California Ave. SW, and promises to have something for adults and children alike, including:

*Hundreds of perennial, herb, veggie and berry starts.

*Garden art created by local artisans Sarah Barrick, Brian Brenno, Terri Goodwin, Carol Farnham, Elaine Moore, and Linda Thorson.

*Gardening advice from local Master Gardeners as well as from Jenny Mandt, Garden Coach at West Seattle Nursery.

*An opportunity to sample OMG! Artisanal Olive Oils & Vinegars, the perfect accompaniment for the season’s fresh greens. Phil Harris, creator of Seattle’s OMG! Flagship Store, will be on hand to share his recipes.

*A “low-mileage” garden tool, accessory and book sale which will also include sustainable freshly cut local bamboo stakes in 6’ and 8’ lengths.

*A Garden Cafe serving fresh baked goods each day.

*Creative children’s activities.

    Please make sure people know how to responsibly plant bamboo so it doesn’t spread and choke out other plants. It needs to be in a container either under or above the ground so roots cannot spread. Very expensive since to fix!!!
