HERONSWOOD GARDEN OPEN & PLANT SALE EVENTS
May 17, July 12, September 6
10:00am to 4:00pm
Planning for the 2014 garden season is underway. Nursery vendors, lectures, and other information will be posted soon. Please check back for more information. We thank the vendors, volunteers and supporters who made the 2013 Heronswood Garden Open & Plant Sale events so successful!
Established in 1987 by renowned horticulturist Dan Hinkley and Robert Jones, Heronswood features thousands of plant varieties that have been carefully documented, cultivated and preserved for scientific, educational and ornamental purposes. In the early 1990’s Heronswood received international acclaim for its large and diverse display garden and became a favorite destination for gardeners, researchers, students and plant lovers from around the world.
W. Atlee Burpee purchased the property in 2000 and eventually closed Heronswood to the public in 2006. The future of Heronswood seemed dark and the many supporters of the garden were deeply saddened by the loss of such a horticultural treasure.
When the Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe learned about Heronswood, they were eager to preserve the property. The S’Klallam (“strong and clever people”) connected with the land and felt a strong sense of responsibility to nurture the garden to its full potential and share the beauty of Heronswood with the community at large.
PORT GAMBLE S’KLALLAM TRIBE
The Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe acquired Heronswood during the summer of 2012. Volunteers began working right away to begin restoration of the garden under the leadership of one of the original co-founders, Dan Hinkley. A Steering Committee consisting of tribal leaders, passionate Heronswood supporters, and plant experts, was formed to advise on the restoration process and long-term vision of the garden.
The Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe has committed to the preservation of Heronswood as a unique horticultural resource and a venue for educational programs, plant sales, special events and tours that will contribute to the ongoing sustenance of the garden.
