Volunteer Park Conservatory is turning 100 years old and celebrations are planned for this Sunday, August 12th. There’s a croquet tournament, horse and carraige rides, an old-timely big-wheeled bicycle, tree tours, kids activities, a raffle, food trucks — a contest for best period costumes — and “Ballard’s finest non-marching band.”

VPC needs your help to restore its greenhouse and stay open. If you can’t make the event, consider making a donation to this important community resource. Info here.
