Join Us For an Awesome
Thyme Garden Event!

   We host several great events throughout the year, starting in spring with our Earth Day Celebration, then Art in the Garden, for Mother's Day and wrapping up with our Fall Salmon Celebration in autumn. We also host summer tours and luncheons, weddings, and rent our beautiful grounds for other special events like baby showers or reunions. 

Art in the Garden: Mother's Day Weekend

The Thyme Garden’s Art in the Garden Mother’s Day Festival is a favorite for regional gardeners and residents and we sincerely hope you can join us in 2023!

The festival features artists from around the region as well as music and food against the backdrop of The Thyme Garden’s 2-acre display gardens and 80 acres of rambling forest paths.
The event brings together artisans from all over Oregon. The music lineup features a wide range of musical talents like acoustic guitar and vocals, bluegrass, marimbas and horns.

Fall Salmon Celebration

  Don't miss our Salmon Walk and Herbal Dinner. Come and experience this beautiful event when the salmon come back to their spawning grounds to complete their life cycle while starting a new one. Then feast on a six course homemade herbal dinner from appetizers to dessert. The day will start at one o'clock with appetizers and beverages (you are welcome to bring your own wine with no corking fee) followed by a walkabout to see the salmon spawning in our streams and hear details of our restoration projects.   Get an up close and in depth look at salmon spawning with this underwater video of Chinook in Crooked Creek.

We will come back from our walk and warm up with a cup of seasonal soup. A tasty winter salad of locally grown greens with your choice of specialty dressings and homemade breads and spreads precedes the main course of wild caught Sockeye Salmon seasoned with our special herb mixture then grilled over a charcoal fire. And last but not least we will create a decadent treat of some kind to satisfy everyone's sweet tooth, served alongside coffee or our spiced apple cider. While the menu is subject to availability, the quality never varies! Our gift shop will be open after the event to pick up mementos or do a little early holiday shopping.
