THE FOX ISLAND SAND & SOIL GARDEN CLUB

The Fox Island Community GardenEstablished in 1979
We welcome new members and invite you to attend our monthly meetings at the Chapel on Echo Bay (400 6th Ave, Fox Island) 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. In July and August there are scheduled open house garden parties sponsored by club members 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 plantaholics, or a Japanese maple tree pruning class.

The club makes an annual award of scholarships to Gig Harbor and Peninsula High School college bound students going into the fields of Horticulture and Environmental Sciences.

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

Here are some of our Civic Projects which the club participates in.

Adopt a Road


Club members help keep the roadside clean of debris along Island Boulevard from the Fox Island Bridge to Fox Drive. We want our entrance to Fox Island to be clean for both residents and visitors.

Fox Island Jeff Feagin Annual Plant Sale
First Saturday in May


The plant sale is a collaborative project that we undertake with FICRA and Fox Island Garden Club members. It is held the first Saturday in May at the Nichols Community Center. We would love your assistance digging and potting plants in the months leading up to sale, or just helping set up and sell plants the week-end of the sale. If your garden is a jungle of perennials that need thinning, give us a call and our members will dig, separate, and pot the plants for our sale in May.

Fox Island Cemetery Flag Pole Garden


Join us in planning, planting, and maintaining the flag pole garden area of the cemetery.

Fox Island Chapel on Echo Bay Garden

Sand and Soil Garden Club Members assist with the planning and maintenance of the Chapel gardens from April through October.

Sand & Soil Garden Club Plants Daffodils
One weekend in November 2006, the members of the Sand & Soil Garden Club planted over 100 daffodil bulbs at the Fox Island Nature Center.  Spring is nearly here, and the bulbs have begun to come up.  Stop by the Nature Center soon, and enjoy all of the springtime color.

Thank you Sand & Soil!

Below: March 17th, the daffodils are blooming!
