About

The Kubota Garden Foundation History Committee is seeking volunteers to help scan and digitize articles written about Kubota Garden. This is a highly independent project but training and guidance will be provided by KGF's Archivist. This is an ongoing project and is easy to do at your own pace.

A stunning twenty acres of hills and valleys, the Kubota Garden features streams, waterfalls, ponds, rock outcroppings and an exceptionally rich and mature collection of plant material. This unique urban refuge displays over sixty years of vision, effort and commitment by the Kubota family. In 1987, thanks to the efforts of many dedicated individuals, the City of Seattle acquired the garden from the Kubota family. The garden is now maintained by the gardeners of the Department of Parks and Recreation and many volunteers.

With 90 years of rich history and a continually evolving garden the Kubota Garden Foundation needs help to capture this Seattle Historical Landmark (the core garden) and extremely valuable community asset.
