Wine & Beer Garden

This festival started years ago as an Art Festival to celebrate the amazing artists in the community as well as the art of nature. So, over the years we have supported various non-profits with Wine & Beer sales. For the last three years we have teamed with the Pacific Northwest Art School (right here in Coupeville). The sales in the garden will go to the school to support their art classes and activities.

The garden is right in front of the stage where the musicians will be playing.

Have fun watching these two very short videos from this summer’s work.   The first is the staff harvesting some Lavendula Angustifolia “Hidcote Pink”. The second is the wonderful sight and sound of distillate coming out [read more…]
