A private venue for smaller gatherings
The Gardens at FranMo Urban Farm are a 25,000 sq ft park-like setting abound with 100's of seasonal trees and plants. And, dozens of places to stage stunning photographs -- An outdoor playground for any professional photographer.
The Gardens offer three one-of-a-kind staging locations, each surrounded by a never-ending montage of natural backdrops packed full of ever-changing seasonal colors.
Evergreen Arbor Stage
The main staging area for wedding ceremonies at FranMo is at the over-sized Arbor centered on the South lawn and set at the base of several 100 ft tall Cedar and Fir trees.
From the Scenic View Patio the bridge crosses over the Bonsai Garden and takes you down the stairs to the Evergreen Arbor staging area. The bridge and the arbor are constructed from Yellow Alaskan Cedar. The finish on the wood was created using the Shou Sugi Ban method -- an ancient Japanese technique for preserving wood. A simply beautiful setting.
P-Patch (a.k.a Vegan Stage)
The P-Patch Stage is set in the middle of 10 raised garden beds and flanked by two lush beds of flowers. Guests are surrounded by tomatoes, zucchini, kale, green beans, snap peas and a variety of aromatic herbs -- Lavender, Sage, and Rosemary.
Set at the base of an old timber Cedrus Deodara Tree surrounded by many Pacific Northwest mainstay species. It is simply stunning. The tree is 10’ diameter at the base and more than 113-years old -- a protected tree, recognized by the National Forestry Service as a "Champion". One of the largest species of its type in the state of Washington.
