Ohme Gardens

Ohme gardensThe Ohme family began an incredible project in 1929 which today has become a garden featured in many national and international publications.

Never intending it to become a tourist attraction, “we just wanted to build a nice backyard”. Neither botanists nor landscape architects, the gardens’ guiding force has always been purely intuitive, and realization largely trial and error. There was never a written plan, ever, they simply carried out what they envisioned, depending on their inborn sense of beauty and proportion to create a garden completely in keeping with its inspiring vista. Their aim was never a development of a formal flower garden, but of informal, natural alpine beauty. The gardens have been on the cover of many magazines and written about in many books – Gardening America, Gardens-Architectural Digest, and American Gardens to name a few. The garden is currently managed through an agreement with Chelan Country and is self-supporting. www.ohmegardens.com

Located: 21 miles from Leavenworth
3327 Ohme Road, Wenatchee

Washington Apple Commission

The Washington Apple Commission Visitors Center in Wenatchee and Washington’s Fruit Place Visitors Center in Yakima, offer an in-depth look at the state’s largest agricultural industry. More than 3,500 Washington tree fruit growers, from the Canadian border to the Oregon border, produce billions of pounds of fruit, including apples, cherries, and soft fruits such as peaches. In apple production alone, Washington is by far the national leader, providing more than half the fresh apples eaten in America.
We invite you to learn how so much fruit from so many growers reaches American households in top condition. Tour groups are welcome, so pack some lunches, load up the gang and head for the Washington Apple Commission Visitors Center, or Washington’s Fruit Place Visitors Center, and spend a beautiful day in Fruit Country.www.bestapples.com
