Community is at the heart of the mission and purpose to make the Mukai Farm & Garden a fabulous community resource. The garden and grounds are open from dawn to dusk for everyone on Vashon to stroll, taking advantage of the spacious area. Our public programming is now on-line, but we look forward to organizing future large gatherings to celebrate the remarkable history of the Mukai Family. And our work on the grant funded restoration of the fruit barreling plant continues.
We have tightened our belts and prioritized the maintenance of the community's investment in the Japanese garden and house. We can't let our million dollar restoration of these treasures be compromised now by forgoing necessary upkeep. This is how you can make a difference. Our costs to do the necessary landscaping, grounds work, and house utilities and maintenance is $39,000 a year. This work is just to keep the status quo....all our planned facility improvements have been put on hold.
Please help us keep the historically significant Mukai Farm & Garden to remain a wonderful cultural, historical and civic place!! Thank you from the Friends of Mukai
