Kubota Garden Tour

August 15, 2021 at 10 a.m.

Hidden in South Seattle, Kubota Garden is a stunning 20-acre landscape that blends Japanese garden concepts with native Northwest plants. Learn more at www.kubotagarden.org.

Members of the Woman’s Century Club will enjoy a private tour of this gem of a public park guided by expert docents from the Kubota Garden Foundation. They’ll be telling us about the history of how this

amazing garden came into being as well as sharing lots of information about the special plants and garden design within it.

The tour is free for members but we encourage participants to make a donation to The Kubota Garden Foundation: https://kubotagarden.org/donate.html

To register: please RSVP via the evite that will go out to members in early July.

· Space is limited. WCC members will receive priority for the 10 spots on the tour on a first-come, first served basis. We will send an email confirming you have a spot reserved on the tour and providing you with more details.
