As a part of the Swansons Nursery Grow With Us Project, we've helped them put together a series of Summer Night events at the nursery. Swansons recently hosted a 'Family Night' event in June, which included activities for children, food and drinks, plus 10% of sales that evening were donated to the Ballard Boys & Girls Club.

This was a great kickoff to the series, but we're especially excited for the two upcoming events. The first is a 21 and over 'Garden to Glass' event, happening on Thursday, July 17 from 6-9pm. Guests will get to taste, and learn how to make botanical cocktails and botanical infused waters in a cocktail-making demonstration by Amy Pennington of GoGo Green Garden. Plus, herb garden planting station (free soil with purchase of plants and pot), live music by Sandy Carbary, Tim Lerch and Chris Symer, and a raffle for a fabulous Swansons container garden to raise money for Food Lifeline.

Also happening this month is a beautification project with the Ballard Boys & Girls Club. More to come on that!

You can sign up to receive invites and information about all of Swansons' events and seminars on their website. And don't forget, you can get all of your personalized plant ideas, tips and advice from Swansons' seasoned pros when you Instagram or Tweet a photo with your question, using #HeySwansons.

We hope to see you there!
