Who Are We?
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!

Julie Jacobson manages the non-profit Bridges to Development https://bridgestodevelopment.org/ 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.
Dig Deep Gardens & Art is a creative place to come and take a breath. We are a space dedicated to growth and artistic expression with a room for special events and workshops.
What we have:
Gallery and Garden Shop- with local art and special gifts to share from around the country and around the world in the shop. Outside a selection of interesting and special plants and garden art and sculptures.
Dig Deep Gardens event space- we have our flexible space with stage and greenhouse as well as the front gardens that are available for events and parties. Come and plan your own event and stay tuned for some special events and music from Dig Deep.
The Dig Deep Gallery Greenhouse- where we have First Friday art shows, also available for events or workshops, and used for our Friday Games in the Greenhouse when not in use.
Octopus Bar- Vashon’s tiniest (maybe friendliest 😊) bar with outdoor seating and indoor options in in less favorable weather. Snacks available and occasional food options which we hope to expand with food trucks and local vendors.
Coming soon- AirBNB in the 1900 farmhouse located in the front garden. Also possible to bundle rental of the house with the front garden space.

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.
