Who We Are

Tami Stone brings her infectious energy and enthusiasm to create special events for creating and connecting community in the Dig Deep Space. Talk to her about your next event that you would like to create or learn what special treat she has in store here. Tami brings her long-term island connections together with her experience at O Space and the Oregon Country Fair to the fertile grounds of Dig Deep Gardens.  Stay tuned for the fun to come! To contact 

Julie Jacobson manages the non-profit Bridges to Development tucked into the welcoming gardens. She is a physician with clinical tropical medicine training and applied epidemiology who has dedicated her career to working in non-profits.  She was with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation for 11 years and PATH (another Seattle non-profit) for 7 years before that working in global health innovation and neglected diseases.  In 2018, she co-founded a non-profit building on that experience to work on health and education as pillars of sustainable development and resilient communities globally.  Co-founder, Alan Brooks, who runs the Bridges office in Geneva, Switzerland, has had his family home on Vashon since the 1940s, so Vashon is a natural home for the Bridges office.  We would hope in the future to have Dig Deep be a place for workshops, Board meetings, and perhaps even fundraisers in the future to support education, health, and innovation programs.


About Us

Dig Deep Gardens & Art is a creative place to come and take a breath. We are an environment dedicated to growth and artistic expression with spaces for public and private special events and workshops. 

When you come to an event at Dig Deep, enjoy performances on our outdoor stage or socialize in our Gallery Greenhouse. Refresh at the Octopus Bar, Vashon’s tiniest (maybe friendliest 😊), or stop by the Gallery and Garden Shop for local art and special gifts, plus a selection of interesting and special plants and garden art and sculptures. The  front gardens are also available for public and private events and parties. Let your imagination blossom!

Plan your own event and stay tuned for some special events and music from Dig Deep.

Our Name

We want to honor the history of the Dig Nursery which shared its special artistic offerings to Vashon for more than 20 years. In this new chapter, we want to connect more closely with the community and Dig Deep with events and spaces that encourage you to Dig Deep into your heart, spirit, and mind.
