Tacoma's Point Defiance Zoo - pointruston.com/blog/point-defiance-zoo


Urban Garden Company

Join us for a tour of private and public spaces, with time for a quick stop at a local nursery.

We will start our day with a special treat at the Point Defiance Zoo, It's not all about the animals, pdza.org/plants. Come and see this plant collector paradise. We will be joined by the head horticulturist for a talk on the evolution of the gardens. Next, we will lunch at Point Defiance Park before stopping at Jungle Fever Nursery. This eclectic nursery is known for its bamboo and unusual tropicals plants.

Other highlights include two private gardens and a finish to our day at the gardens at 311, (Urban Garden Company). The sidewalks have literally been cut away to make way for planting beds along the restored buildings. Behind the city block is the surprise of lush gardens growing in the midst of asphalt and the main railway system in downtown Tacoma. Hummingbirds and pollinators make a home in the lavish gardens growing out of a strip of urban renewal.

Cost for this event:
APLDWA Members plus one guest:
$60 per person;
Non-members: $95
Includes lunch and late-afternoon reception

We encourage people to carpool. A trip planner for the tour will be emailed once people have registered.
