$$20.00
Open House: June 13, 2015. 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

 

  Eastside Garden Tour 

“Thundering torrents of water, ice, and earth roared across the Northwest, carving new canyons, sculpting monstrous waterfalls, instantly transforming the face of the land. Then, almost as suddenly as they had come, the floods were gone”….leaving behind the deep, rich soils in which we peacefully plant our gardens. (Ice Age Floods Institute, www.iafi.org

Come explore the rain-blessed river communities of the West Columbia Gorge as you stroll from one garden, pass inspiring natural views to the next gardener’s pride. Leave the hectic pace of the surrounding world and enter into the lush landscapes near the Historic Columbia River Highway, once known as “The King of the Roads.” 

We welcome you to our community and invite you to experience our exceptional quality of life! Gardens open 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM on June 13, 2015. Tickets for this self-guided tour are $20 and children under 13 are free. Tickets and accompanying maps will be available the day of the tour at 32201 East Historic Columbia River Hwy, Corbett Oregon 97019. Please plan to pay the "tradional way" with cash or check. 

Proceeds will benefit Crown Point Historical Society. The mission of the Society is to preserve and share the history that includes the western end and surrounding area of the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. Plans are underway for a 3,500 square foot museum building to house and share the archives and collections. Tools, boats and large machinery used in fishing, farming and logging will be on display on the 2.69 acre museum grounds.

 Garden Descriptions 

  “Texture, Color and Design”

Corbett, Oregon 97019

No photos, please

Beautifully designed by Elaine Hutson, this 37 year-old-garden was once a grassy field. Years in the making, her garden is now a living showcase of her business, Landscapes in Living Color. Both the English style garden that surrounds her home and the woodland garden beyond are designed for year round interest. Her artistic use of plant form, color and texture weaves their way throughout the gardens.

A 36-foot by 10-foot conservatory provides a home for tropical plants, allowing the zone 6 climate to grow zone 9 plants. Bird of Paradise, oleander, tree fern, and lemon datura are just a few of the specimens that thrive and survive in this unheated space.

  “The Four-Season Landscape”

Corbett, Oregon 97019

This one-acre garden originated in the mid-1950’s on the grounds of the 1923 Hurlburt School. Based on an English motif, today it boasts an 80-foot-long perennial border, a large woodland garden with a meandering path, mature rhododendrons and dozens of ornamental trees and shrubs. This beautiful four-season garden also contains fruit trees, five varieties of berries, as well as grapes, vegetables and herbs. You will see a garden house, an Artist Studio and an arbor that supports a hardy kiwi vine.

 “Loved and not Forgotten”

Corbett, Oregon 97019 

Current owners, Catherine and Don are lovingly reviving the botanical delight that once surrounded the original farm house.  A space planner who enjoys designing interiors as well as exterior hardscapes and facades, Catherine uses her artistic eye to extend her gardens indoors, the interior of her home to the outdoors. Caring for 10 acres is no small task, working non-stop they have repaired and replaced everything needed from the main house to the barn and pastures beyond. Currently they are landscaping the natural creek and pond located in the middle of the pasture and building a trail through the forest to connect to a trail system following Buck Creek.

 “Boys, Balls, Dogs”

Corbett, Oregon 97019 

Not the typical “garden tour” garden, don’t expect this garden to be “tour ready”. Gardens merely2 years young rise from the grassy areas where boys once kicked their balls and dogs chased their boys. None the less, it is astounding how quickly plants can grow in the mild maritime climate, rich soils and abundant rainfalls that bless the West Columbia River Gorge! Under the watchful eye of garden designer Elaine Hutson, Karen is frantically planting the pots lining her driveway, the bare roots barely surviving in the “green house” and the plants stashed all over the property. Much of the creek is planted, but the pond…weeds are everywhere! Will all the pots be planted, the empty pots be hidden, the paths and beds be mulched, the tires and old cars be moved…in time for the tour??
