Thank you to all our family, friends and neighbors who helped us celebrate the Rededication of the Sammamish Valley Grange Heritage Garden. It’s an unique, reflective location showcasing the legacy and traditions of the Grange. Jot us a note if you’re interested in volunteering on this privately managed Farm and Garden located in the heart of the Sammamish Valley adjacent to the SV Trail. Here are some highlights from the day. (Read more about the Garden below.)
The Sammamish Valley Grange Heritage Garden (SVGHG) is a unique display garden featuring large engraved boulders and a vast assortment of herbs, ornamental grasses, and pollinator plants. Located on private farmland in the Sammamish Valley, this garden is a place of reflection and inspiration, but also part of a productive culinary and medicinal herb business. Established in 2007, the garden first served as a place for Grange gatherings, then as a pea-patch garden, and more recently renovated with herbs and pollinators. Ornamental trees and shrubs provide a backdrop to the Heritage Garden. (Check out work in progress photos below.)
The SVGHG is unique in that you can only access it via the Sammamish River Trail, along the stretch between Wilmot Park and the baseball fields located near the Hollywood District of Woodinville. You can walk, ride, or get there by any means — other than a car. The gated entrance is located one-half mile south of Wilmot Park or about one mile north of the Hollywood District. It’s worth the walk!
The SVGHG is open seasonally on Fridays and Saturdays. You can check here for specific dates and hours that the garden will be open, as well as a schedule of tours, classes, and demonstrations. Jot us a note if you’re interested in volunteering.
