The Island County WSU Master Gardeners’ Educational Garden at Greenbank Farm provides a unique opportunity for the public to learn about gardening practices they can use in their own gardens. The gardens contain examples of adapting gardening to a variety of environmental conditions; of choosing the right plant for the right place; of designing gardens for special purposes; and of using recycled materials. In addition, Master Gardeners offer public workshops and demonstrations on a variety of gardening topics. The setting for the Educational Garden is an early 20th century farm, and the design of each individual garden project is in keeping with the ambiance of this historic site.
