JULY – Summer Picnic – Fancy Fronds


Saturday July 31st, 12-3 PM

Enjoy a potluck lunch, challenge yourself with a horticultural mini-quiz, see the Thai inspired Pavilion inspired by the musical, “The King and I”, splash in the river, and stroll through the greenhouses and around the grounds.

Potluck at 1 pm, followed by a brief general meeting at 2 pm- no agenda, but a chance to ask questions and share ideas.

Bring something to share for the potluck lunch – no need to sign up. If we all bring desserts, that’s what we will eat. We will provide beverages and plates, etc.

Fancy Fronds
40830 172nd Street SE
Gold Bar, WA 98251

From I-405, go to the Hwy 522 interchange in Bothell/Woodinville. Take the exit going east toward Monroe, where it merges with Hwy 2.

Make a left onto Hwy 2; Gold Bar is 15 miles east of Monroe. (If you are driving from Hwy 2, drive straight through Monroe.) Go east towards Stevens Pass on Hwy 2.

At the east end of Gold Bar, just past the Mt. View Diner on the right side of the road is a large electronic highway sign proclaiming various messages about the hazards or conditons on Stevens Pass. Just beyond this sign is Dorman Road.

Turn right onto Dorman Road, cross the RR tracks and continue to the end of the farmer’s field where Dorman turns abruptly to the left. The second private road on the right (between two fenced fields) is marked by the intersection of 408th Ave. SE and 172nd St. SE.

Turn right on 408th Ave. SE onto a gravel road marked Private Drive. 408 turns into 172 as it turns abruptly left. Continue down the gravel road until you see the greenhouse arches on the right side of the road. Pull through the entrance gate and park along the driveway.
