gard1The WSU community horticulture programs in Lewis County actively embrace “community” in educational programs and services.


The WSU Lewis County Extension Master Gardener Volunteer program training is held year around. Training incorporates on-line videos and presentations, reading, and hands-on and field work at once a month all-day classes.

Lewis County Extension Master Gardener Volunteer program offers rolling enrollment, this means that you can enroll any month during the year and complete the series from that start point. In example, if a trainee begins the course in March 2016 then their completion date would be February 2017.

Why wait? Join us!

Trainees hone their new skills by working in plant and insect clinics answering gardening questions from the public as well as maintaining three demonstration gardens located throughout the county.

Master Recycler/Composter training is offered in partnership with the Lewis County Solid Waste Department. Trained volunteers provide community education and service at various recycling and community events throughout the year.
