Wilkinson Farm Greenhouse Ribbon Cutting

Gig Harbor, Wash. – October 11, 2012 The City of Gig Harbor will officially cut the ribbon on its new Wilkinson Farm Greenhouse on October 19, 2012 at 3:00p.m at Wilkinson Farm, 4118 Rosedale Street, Gig Harbor.

Local citizens seeing the need to replace the 1974 version of a greenhouse at Wilkinson Farm prompted the construction of the new structure adjacent to Gig Harbor’s Community Garden. Mayor Chuck Hunter designed the new greenhouse and under the leadership of Gig Harbor’s Rotarians, the new greenhouse was built and financed in 2012.

The new greenhouse will promote community recreation, education and support those in need of food in honor of the Wilkinson Family, who provided food and shelter to those in need during the 1930’s.

The public is encouraged to join the ribbon cutting celebration on October 19th.
