WHAT?! ARE THE GARDENS FOR SALE???

Realtors’ boxes attached to gardening tools in the gardens at McGraw, Boston, and Galer. Surely the gardens aren’t for sale, are they??

~No. No, they’re not. These are public gardens. But...the City does not maintain them. It’s up to us, the community, to maintain them.

And what’s with the signs that say, “Feed Me?” Is something hungry lurking among the plants??
~We certainly hope not. Actually, the props and signs are PPQA’s way of getting out the                word that we need you, the public, to help care for the gardens so they'll continue to thrive.

So, how can you help? Become one of the “35 To Help The Queen Anne Gardens Thrive."
PPQA's goal is $20,000 for another three years of professional watering and maintenance. We're already halfway there.

If 35 people will give just $12.00 per month for 24 months, we’ll raise the additional                 $10,000 needed to help the gardens thrive. That’s 
“35 To Help The Queen Anne Gardens Thrive."


Are You In?!?

We sure hope so. We've made it easy to donate:
1.      You can set up automatic payments of $12/month for 24 months through your bank’s Bill Pay. Your bank will take care of making out checks payable to Picture Perfect Queen Anne and mailing them to: Picture Perfect Queen Anne, 2212 Queen Anne Ave N, #542, Seattle 98109

OR

2.      You can set up automatic payments of $12/month for 24 months by clicking the "Donate Now!" button on this page and using PayPal. Then, click on the gold/blue donate button below the donation options. Once you're on PayPal, be sure to check the small box “Make this recurring (monthly)” to the right of the donation amount.

          OR

3.      You can pay in one lump sum of $288 either by mailing a check to the above address or by credit card through PayPal on the “Help Us” page of our website


Thank you for supporting the gardens and making sure they continue to thrive.

CEDAR GROVE COMPOST

The gardens have just received their yearly blanket of compost...made extra special because Cedar Grove donated the ten cubic yards of compost need. Cedar Grove made this contribution because, thanks to all of you---our donors and volunteers, PPQA could demonstrate that the gardens at Galer, Boston and McGraw were inspired and planted by the community and that they continue to be an important community asset.

Thank you, Cedar Grove. The gardens very much appreciate their new deep covering.

Brooms and Shovels and Rakes, Oh My!!

We're looking for three brooms, three shovels, and four rakes that you no longer use and would be willing to give away. We want to spray paint them and place them in the gardens at Galer, McGraw, and Boston as eye-catching props for our next fundraising effort.

Please send us an email at pictureperfectqa@gmail.com if you have one or more of these garden tools that you can donate to the cause. Thanks.
