2016 Creston Valley Garden Club tour: Alta and Ken Fedak’s garden

Web Lead

The garden of Erickson's Alta and Ken Fedak.

The Creston Valley Garden Club hosted its garden tours on June 11, with seven private gardens and Spectrum Farms included in the event, which runs every second year.

The sixth stop was Alta and Ken Fedak’s garden in Erickson. Their house overlooks a large bed with dozens of perennials, and terraces continue the garden up the hill beside and behind the house, where 50-60-year-old grapevines grow — as well as uncultivated remnants of an asparagus farm.

Gardens on this year’s tour included those of Harvey ReeseNora and Mike ZemanCecil and Patrick EddySpectrum FarmsYvonne and Dereck LarsenAlta and Ken FedakWendy and Randy Ross, andLarry and Jenifer Wolf.
