Kubota Garden Foundation Collection


The Kubota Garden Foundation Photograph Collection documents the history of Kubota Garden, a commercial nursery and display garden established in 1927 by Fujitaro Kubota and owned by the City of Seattle since 1987. The collection contains photographs of the Garden, the Kubota family, the work of the Kubota Gardening Company, and of the activities of the Kubota Garden Foundation, a volunteer organization which works to support, enhance and perpetuate the Garden. The collection also includes photographs of work done by City of Seattle staff in the Garden, and of the neighborhood immediately surrounding the Garden.
