Swanson’s Nursery Hosts Grow With Us Family Night

Percentage of the proceeds to benefit Ballard Boys & Girls Club

WHAT: Seattle gardening institution, Swanson’s Nursery, will donate 10-percent of sales during its first-annual Grow With Us Family Night, on Thursday, June 19, to the Ballard Boys & Girls Club. The funds will go directly to support future gardening projects for kids who attend the Ballard Boys & Girls Club.

Families are encouraged to visit Swanson’s Nursery between 6-8 p.m. on June 19 for the Grow With Us Family Night festivities, which include: a kids’ seed-planting station courtesy of Renee’s Garden Seeds, food from Hot Dog King, sweet treats from Street Wheels Ice Cream Sandwiches, face painters and a balloon artist.

This is part of a larger initiative by Swanson’s Nursery, as it is funding a community gardening and landscaping project at the Ballard Boys & Girls Club this summer. A locally owned, Northwest favorite since 1924, Swanson’s Nursery is a five-acre garden center located in Seattle’s Crown Hill neighborhood, just north of Ballard. Swanson’s promotes organic, sustainable gardening and is dedicated to growing the smartest, hippest, healthiest gardeners in the Pacific Northwest.
