Edmonds Flower Program

Beautiful hanging flower baskets and corner parks bursting with color are a sure sign that spring has arrived in Edmonds. Visitors and residents look forward to the annual floral displays that herald the arrival of community fairs and festivals.

Started in the mid 1970s as part of the Street Beautification Program, the City’s floral displays benefit from Edmonds mild marine climate which suits for a broad range of ornamental plants.

The flowers selected must tolerate extreme weather conditions yet remain colorful from May to mid September. New color combinations and plant materials are developed yearly based on hardiness, ease of care, and performance. The flowers that adorn the hanging baskets and corner parks are grown from seed in City greenhouses. Hanging baskets are constructed by City staff. One day each spring, City staff and community volunteers’ work together to begin planting the parks and hanging baskets. Hanging baskets are going up during the first week of June.

A special thank you to the Edmonds Floredum Garden Club volunteers for plant all 151 baskets.

Mieko’s Fitness is owned by a brother and sister team: Mieko Hart and Seiji Hart.  They were born and raised in the Seattle area, and have extensive experience in the health club industry. Before starting Mieko’s Fitness, they were part of the ownership and management team of Hart’s Athletic Clubs which their father founded in 1987.

In 1998, Richard Hart and his partner sold all 10 Hart’s Athletic Clubs and this prompted Mieko and Seiji to get a fresh start in the industry.  In 1999, Mieko and Seiji opened their first 2 clubs in Seattle and Edmonds under the name “Mieko’s Fitness”.  Since then, Mieko’s Fitness has continued to expand and now has 4 convenient local area locations.

History: Tawa Supermarket Inc. was established in 1984 by Mr. Roger H. Chen. As the Asian immigrant community grew in Los Angeles, so did the appetite for quality Asian food products. Sensing the demand, Mr. Chen opened the first Tawa Supermarket store in Westminster, California (Little Saigon). For more than 27 years, Tawa has satisfied the needs of Asian immigrants by providing them with their hometown flavors. Today, Tawa has grown from an individual supermarket into a grand diversified organization. We now serve customers from all over the world. Currently, Tawa has twenty-seven full-service stores in California, two in Washington (Renton in 1999 & Edmonds in 2003) and one each in  Nevada & Texas.

Community Involvement:  Tawa Supermarket attributes its growth and success to the customers’ involvement and community support. Tawa firmly believes in giving back to the community, and has always actively supported all kinds of public services toward Asian communities.  Since 1988, Tawa has held a Mother’s Day Event–Children’s Drawing Contest and an Anniversary Price Draw event that is popular every year. The events are well received and many families participate.
