Sorticulture 2024 @ Downtown Everett

Gardening classes galore 🪴

📆 Friday, June 7th – Sunday, June 9th
📍 Downtown Everett: Hewitt Ave & Colby Ave, Everett
🎟 Free to attend

While spring planting may already be underway—home gardeners need not fret—there’s still ample time to prep your garden beds to thrive well into summer and fall.  But maybe you’re still searching for a spark of design inspiration? Or maybe you could use some gentle gardening guidance?

Enter Sorticulture, a three-day gardening arts festival in seaside downtown Everett. There’ll be over 130 artists, nurseries, and garden-related nonprofits to shop and learn from along with a music stage, food trucks, and more. Also making his return is PNW gardening icon Ciscoe Morris, where he’ll be presenting a talk on great plant picks with a Q&A.

And there’ll be plenty more classes to sit in on over the weekend. This year, Sorticulture is venturing into new gardening and art education opportunities (offered at the Schack Art Center). Here are some highlights:
