The Willamette Valley Tour

Three Days of Gardens and Plant Shopping

Oregon is so close and yet so strangely far away. Let us take you with us to Eugene and the upper Willamette Valley. Travel by bus with NHS to visit the spectacular garden of Marietta and Ernie O’Byrne, and several other private garden gems in the area. Lunch in beautiful gardens with your friends. We will be stopping for lunch, gardens and shopping on the way to and from Eugene. Pack light so you have plenty of room to bring back plants from two of Oregon’s finest specialty nurseries, Gossler Farms and Dancing Oaks.
This perfect summer getaway includes bus trip to and from Seattle or Olympia; two-night stay in downtown Eugene; breakfasts in Eugene and lunch each day in a different garden.
