Fall Salmon Celebration

Don't miss the Thyme Garden's Salmon Walk and Herbal Dinner. Come and experience this beautiful event when the salmon come back to their spawning grounds, then feast on a 6-course homemade herbal dinner from appetizers to dessert.

The day will start at 1 p.m. with appetizers and beverages (you are welcome to bring your own wine with no corking fee), followed by a walkabout to see the salmon spawning in nearby streams and hear details of the Thyme Garden's restoration projects.

You'll come back from the walk and warm up with a cup of seasonal soup. A tasty winter salad of locally grown greens with your choice of specialty dressings and homemade breads and spreads precedes the main course of wild-caught sockeye salmon cooked to perfection.

Last but not least, you'll enjoy a decadent treat to satisfy everyone's sweet tooth, served alongside coffee or spiced apple cider. While the menu is subject to availability, the quality never varies! The gift shop will be open after the event to pick up mementos or do a little early holiday shopping.
