Fox Island Sand and Soil Garden Club

We welcome new members and invite you to attend our monthly meetings. During COVID, the monthly meetings normally held at the Chapel on Echo Bay (400 6th Ave, Fox Island) are taking place online via Zoom. Meetings continue to be held on the second Thursday of the month from September through June at 11 am. Membership is open to non-Fox Island residents also.

Our purpose is to stimulate and share the love and knowledge of gardening among members, friends and neighbors in the community of Fox Island. Additionally, members volunteer for island gardening projects and raise funds for college scholarships.

Scheduled guest speakers or educational plant profiles are featured at meetings throughout the year and two planned field trips to local special gardens augment our meeting schedule. Club members sponsor scheduled open house garden parties in July and August where you can enjoy the beauty of their home gardens in full bloom in a relaxed social setting.

Whether you are a novice gardener or have years of experience, we welcome you. Our garden club members are diverse in knowledge, experience and ages. Plants and gardening bring us all together where friendships form quickly and spontaneous social events might have you heading for a local nursery to peruse plant stock with a car full of plant-aholics, or a Japanese maple tree pruning class.

We are a non-profit organization registered within the state of Washington. Dues are currently $10 per member for one year.
