Garfield County Master Gardeners

Master Gardener Volunteers serve as human links between WSU research-based horticulture information and the general public, providing residents with knowledge about sound horticultural practices including water conservation and water quality protection, sustainable landscaping, integrated pest management and control of invasive species. Adoption of these practices by home gardeners can impact the economy and ecological value of home and public landscapes. We work closely with the Asotin County Master Gardeners.

Our programs provide education and information to the public and include the following:

Plant Clinics

We offer various plant clinics throughout the community. From June through August you can find us each Monday from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the Extension Office, 757 Main Street, next to the courthouse. We are also occasionally available at other events in the community. Bring your samples in any time to help us diagnose the issue. For more information, please contact Lisbeth at lisbeth.randall@wsu.edu.

Yard and Garden Series Workshops

During the Spring and Fall the Master Gardeners hold workshops educating the public about various horticultural issues. Watch the horticulture calendar of events and local media for dates.

Community Presentations, Fact Sheets and Articles

The Asotin and Garfield County Master Gardeners are available to give presentations on various topics. They also write articles and fact sheets. The Master Gardener office within the Garfield County Extension office, offers a wide variety of publication, articles and fact sheets available. Master Gardener Community Presentation Brochure.

Garfield County Fair

The Garfield County Fair is held the second full weekend after Labor Day in September. Master Gardeners will be on hand to answer gardening questions while you tour the various exhibits and enjoy the fair.

Working with Youth

The Master Gardeners teach the 3rd grade youth how to grow their own garden and about worm composting at the local elementary and Extension Youth Activity Camp held for one week each summer. Kids learn all about gardening, weather, birds, bugs and more!
