The Oak Harbor Garry Oak Society is a 501(c)3 nonprofit group, and our work is powered through the generosity of our volunteers, donors, and those who purchase our fundraising items. The society’s fundraising efforts are very unique, as each and every item we sell is truly one-of-a-kind.
It all starts with the Garry oak tree. Oak Harbor, located on beautiful Whidbey Island, contains many majestic, ancient Garry oak trees. The Society sustainably collects Garry oak wood from fallen limbs, branches, and trunks. This raw Garry oak wood is then transformed by local, volunteer artisans into a variety of finished woodcraft items.
Every item is handcrafted by local artisans with sustainably collected Garry oak wood from Oak Harbor.
Take a trip to the Garry Oak Gallery in Downtown Oak Harbor who is featuring our woodcraft items. They are located at 830 SE Pioneer Way # 101, Oak Harbor, WA. See their website for details.
No two pieces produced are the same. The variations in the wood grain and subtle differences in color and shape define the natural character and charm of Garry oak wood. Our inventory is constantly evolving. These items make wonderful gifts for others, and even yourself! Every piece sold brings the tree’s lifecycle full circle by directly supporting the planting and conservation of Garry oak trees in our community.
You can purchase these fundraising items a variety of ways. The Garry Oak Gallery in downtown Oak Harbor is currently hosting the Society as a visiting artist in their vibrant gallery. It’s absolutely worth a visit! We also attend local events, find our booth at Holland Happening and Music Festival, among others.
