NOTE: the following is a press release issued Friday morning by the Enumclaw Regional Healthcare Foundation.

Join your friends and neighbors for the Plateau Garden Tour on Saturday, June 22, 2013 sponsored by Enumclaw Regional Healthcare Foundation.

This year's rain-or-shine, self-guided tour will kick off at 9am and run through 4pm.  The tour will feature nine distinct gardens plus a bonus stop for a free glass of lemonade at a new blueberry farm.

The self-guided tour starts at Country Farm & Feed (23417 SE 436 Enumclaw) where participants can pick up their tour booklet featuring maps and tour information.

Pre-sale tickets are available at Windmill Gardens (Sumner), Country Farm & Feed (Enumclaw), GE&B Nursery & Gifts (Enumclaw), Gramma’s Garden (Enumclaw), Enumclaw Chamber of Commerce, and Enumclaw Regional Healthcare Foundation. Tickets are also available on-line at or by calling ERHF office at 360.802.3206. Tickets are $15 pre-sale and $20 day of the event.

All of the gardens show the creativity of the owners and gardeners. Each garden will feature an artist showcasing garden related art. To help answer questions there will be local garden club members on-site at each garden. If you find a plant that would make a delightful addition to your home garden, you can head back to Country Farm & feed who will be showcasing unique and specifically selected plants for sale that will be featured in the gardens. Plants will be available for purchase at a discount throughout the day.

What would an Enumclaw Garden Tour be without our Homegrown Garden Columnist and host of the TV show “Dig In” Marianne Binetti? Pull up a seat and hear the latest and greatest that Binetti has to share.

Lunch will be offered for an addition cost where you can also enjoy traditional American & Irish Fiddle and vocal tunes performed by  - The Summer Januaries.

Southwood Elementary School’s Magic String graduate, Corbin Bender, will roam the grounds at two neighboring showcase gardens while pleasantly filling the garden with violin melodies.

Proceeds from the Garden Tour will benefit the Care Van program which offers free healthcare related transportation to residents on the plateau. The Care Van service is not just for seniors. Anyone showing a hardship for healthcare related transport can request a ride for free. On an average, the Care Van completes over 220 transports a month across the Plateau.

Additional Garden Tour information is available at or by calling the ERHF office at 360-802-3206.
