Please support the Master Gardener Foundation of Thurston County (MGFTC) as we host our first virtual fundraiser. Join local gardening expert Marianne Binetti as she entertains and informs us with Gardening Trivia. The event begins at 6:30 p.m. and includes several door prize drawings throughout this video (Zoom) presentation.

A Grand Prize drawing will be held at the end of the presentation for a future private tour of Marianne Binetti’s garden for up to 10 people!

The sign in link will be sent by email after the registration fee is paid. CE hours for Master Gardeners can be earned for attending this virtual event.

More details to come (including how to register) in mid-August.

Last year the Foundation raised $56,596 from a variety of activities including the big Spring Plant Sale, Bloomin’ Bingo, and handi-craft/tools fundraising committees. The COVID-19 pandemic caused the 2020 Plant Sale and Bloomin’ Bingo to be cancelled.

Please support this new fundraiser to ensure the joys of gardening continue to be shared with our community!

Funds raised help support the three Thurston County Demonstration Gardens, a plant clinic providing gardening information to the public and training for certified Master Gardeners and Master Recycler Composters. Last year our volunteer workforce including 77 Master Gardeners and 42 Master Recycler Composters gave over 20,014 service hours towards our public outreach and community activities.
