Our programs evolve from member suggestions, and we have revamped the 2018 program line-up to better meet member needs. The Program Committee is organizing 4 ‘mini-Symposiums’. Each of these programs will be 4-6 hours in length, which will allow us to delve deeper into the subject matter. And, networking time, which is always integral to every program, is being expanded. We will continue to address issues related to professional growth, design exposure, national certification and business/legislative advocacy. Be sure to share your thoughts and ideas with the Program Committee!

Discover an alluring landscape that's healthier for families and local eco-systems. The Waterwise Garden showcases a diverse array of plants that delight the senses, attract native wildlife, and conserve resources. A visit to its shady pathways confirms that splendid gardens don't require large amounts of water or garden chemicals that can harm children, pets, and the Puget Sound. This award-winning display offers rich possibilities for your home garden and a healthier environment.

In the Waterwise Garden, you’ll learn new practices and discover plantings that conserve water, lower chemical use, reduce runoff, recycle waste, and preserve habitat – all without sacrificing an ounce of beauty.

Ferguson Garden: presented and hosted by the designer, Laura Kleppe
After designing the clients’ adjacent parcel in 2008 into a private meadow, the client again retained Laura in 2011 to design a garden wanting to solve a long-standing subsurface water issue on their sloped property. The goals were to control the runoff that had caused the lower level lawn to be unusable throughout the year, and to reduce their overall water bill for both properties. Design features include a 13,000 gallon water vault, with an additional overflow vault, to hold water collected throughout the year; a channel drain along the driveway; and a bioswale that captures subsurface water and conveys it to the above mentioned water vault where it is stored for reuse in the garden.

Jorgensen Garden: presented and hosted by the designer, Jason Jorgensen
Jason’s own private garden has been lovingly designed and was inspired by the Tucker Garden (which he has helped to maintain since 2012), the Beth Chatto Gravel Garden, and other summer-dry gardens.

Using a carefully selected palette of drought-tolerant plant communities and permeable hardscape, he has created an imagined Mediterranean hillside that can handle our diverse weather conditions.

Tucker Garden: presented and hosted by the garden steward, Jason Jorgensen
The Tucker garden is a summer-dry garden inspired by the Beth Chatto Gravel Garden in Colchester, UK. This summer-dry garden was installed over 16 years ago replacing a tired front lawn. The Tucker Garden has been performing beautifully; attracting wildlife and pollinators, and can withstand our winter rains and summer droughts. This garden was the original inspiration for Jason’s passion for summer-dry gardening. This talk will focus on educating the participants on this special gardening style and technique.
