Crook was a volunteer with the Sequim Botanical Garden Society (SBGS) for five years and a gardener since moving to Sequim in 1978. Mary’s mother took Japanese flower arranging lessons at home when the family lived in Japan, and always after the flowers and foliage were the centerpieces of the living room. Inheriting some of her mother’s vases, and loving the color and variety of textures of flowers from her own garden, she enjoys bringing them together in fresh and dried arrangements.

SBGS is a volunteer partner of the City of Sequim and a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, which provides information and demonstration of what can be done in home gardening with research-based horticulture practices.
