Located at the foot of Mount Rainier 40 miles South of Seattle and along the shores of Commencement Bay in Washington State, Tacoma is recognized as a livable and progressive international city.  With a population of more than 199,600 residents, the city that incorporated in 1884 has grown from its historical roots as a home of sawmills and a bustling port that exported goods around the world to a center for international exports, the arts and healthy, affordable living.
Although Tacoma is situated at a northern latitude the climate is moderated by its proximity to the Pacific Ocean as it flows into Puget Sound. Gardens flourish in abundant rain, adequate sunshine and mild temperatures.  It has been said that our climate approximates that of Great Britain.
