Summer Nights at Swanson's

Unknown Curator client Swanson's Nursery, which is celebrating its 90th Anniversary in 2014, is hosting a series of Summer Nights events, starting with Family Night on Thursday, June 19, from 6-8 p.m. In anticipation for the first day of summer, which is Saturday, June 21, families are encouraged to stop by the beloved Seattle gardening institution for an evening of fun! There will be a kids' seed-planting station courtesy of Renee's Garden Seeds, face painters, a balloon artist, and food, drinks and desserts from Hot Dog King and Street Wheels Ice Cream Sandwiches.

To make this first-annual event a little sweeter, Swanson's is donating 10-percent of sales to the Ballard Boys & Girls Club. The funds will go directly to support future gardening projects for the more than 1,700 kids who attend the clubhouse annually.

This is part of a larger Grow With Us Project initiative by Swanson's, as it is funding a community gardening and landscaping project at the Ballard Boys & Girls Club later this summer.

Stay tuned for more information on July's Garden-to-Glass cocktail-themed event, and August's hops-themed event!

Swanson's Nursery is located at 9701 15th Avenue NW in Seattle's Crown Hill/Ballard neighborhood.
