About the Garden Quilt Program
Pine Meadow Ranch Center for Arts and Agriculture (PMRCAA) in Sisters, Oregon is partnering with local artists and quilters to design a signature garden space that is inspired by a quilt design. No previous gardening experience is required. Proposals for the 2021 growing season were due Friday, February 12.
The garden, located at Pine Meadow Ranch, will be a 20’ x 20’ bed with ‘quilt-blocks’ no smaller than 12” to be designed out of plants and flowers. Planting for this growing season will begin in early March. Proposals that include time towards implementation of the garden are encouraged. Implementation will be lead by the PMRCAA’s Garden Manager.
While the Garden Bed Quilt program will be a permanent asset at PMRCAA, the plantings within the bed will be changed annually for new artists. Every year, signage with the title and designers name will be placed near the bed - along with other celebratory and programming activities planned. Garden Bed Quilt press will highlight the chosen designer every year. A stipend of $250 will also be awarded to the finalist.
