History of the Tour
In 2013, the White Center Home Garden Tour will celebrate its 19th Anniversary. What started in 1993 as a small, spontaneous effort to build a more positive community image and encourage neighborhood activism which has, over the years, brought this small, Southwest Seattle community together around gardening and introduced more than 10,000 people from across the region to all that White Center offers.
Because the gardens we feature are rarely repeated, we have introduced well over 100 fascinating and varied gardens, and gardeners, to our residents and visitors, who spend a special day getting to know one another and gathering a wealth of information on botany, horticulture and garden design.
Thanks to its low-key, grassroots nature, the White Center Garden Tour has become a favorite perennial event that is widely anticipated year after year. Because it is free of charge, the White Center Garden Tour attracts many families and gardeners with limited budgets.
