Kruckeberg Botanic Garden Foundation is seeking new Board members

Post Date:04/16/2019 10:43 am

The Kruckeberg Botanic Garden was founded in 1958 when Dr. Art Kruckeberg and his wife Mareen moved to a 4-acre farmhouse in Shoreline. Over the ensuing decades, they created the Garden, growing nearly every plant from seed or cutting. Art and Mareen took an informal, naturalistic approach to design, combining Northwest native plants with unusual and rarely cultivated species collected from the West coast and around the world. The result is a unique Puget Sound woodland garden.

Kruckeberg Botanic Garden is owned by the City of Shoreline as a public park and operated by the Kruckeberg Botanic Garden Foundation (KBGF). The Foundation is concerned with preserving this unique treasure through community education opportunities such as tours, field trips, workshops, and horticultural classes.

KBGF is seeking new Board members to help in this effort.

As a Board member, the following minimum requirements are expected:

  • Attend monthly meetings (third Tuesday of each month)
  • Volunteer at Garden Events such as:
    • Solstice Stroll in December
    • Halloween Spooky Night
    • Mother’s Day Plant Sale
    • Garden Party (annual fundraiser)
  • Focus on fundraising to further the goals of the foundation
  • Act as an ambassador for the Garden to attract new interest in its preservation

Our constituents are a representation of our community – bank tellers, school teachers, small business owners, physicians, lawyers, writers, and scientists. We are looking for passionate supporters to aid in this ongoing endeavor to help preserve this community treasure for generations to come.

If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity, please email kgbf@kruckeberg.org or call 206-546-4851 ext. 501 for more information.
