Garden On, Vashon! takes readers on a year-round garden excursion to explore gardening on Vashon Maury Island, past and present. Visit gardens, get inside greenhouses, gain tips from Island growers, and hear from over 100 Islanders telling you how they have gardened, farmed and cultivated this special place. Learn our Island's history of growing from the legendary Beall Greenhouse Company to Island vineyards, gardening clubs and landmark trees.
The book also provides specific advice about raising an Island tomato, starting and growing veggies, keeping bees, caring for an orchard, starting a fall/winter garden, and what geology, soils and water resources make Vashon Maury Island such a special place.
