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. 
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.   Really stylish glasses that help you see into the water will be provided! 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, followed by a course of three kinds of homemade breads and three choices of herbal spreads. A tasty winter salad of locally grown greens, dried berries and sunflower seeds with three choices of herbal dressing precedes the main course of wild caught Coho Salmon poached in herbs on the grill or tender chicken breast with savory stuffing and baked with a hazelnut crust the drizzled with a tangy cranberry glaze; depending on what's looking the best. And last but not least Janet 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.
