Due to Covid-19, the Master Gardeners have not yet scheduled events  in 2021, but will as soon as we allowed.

WSU Chelan County Master Gardeners like to get our hands dirty. We want to share the dirt on growing healthy plants in the Wenatchee Valley with you.

For specific questions on managing your landscape or insect pests, please contact our Insect & Plant Clinic.

Talk to us at specific times at farmers markets, fairs and special events, when we are working in our demonstration gardens.

Classes

WSU Master Gardeners teach classes in Wenatchee, WA.

Spring, Summer, and Fall are great for gardening. Join our classes and events to learn more about timely topics such as Third Saturdays in the Garden — Take free tours and short tutorials to educate and motivate you to get outside and into the garden. Held at the Master Gardener Community Education Garden, from June to September, each Third Saturday features Garden Talks – mini-classes covering specific gardening basics. We thank our sponsors for supporting these events.

Check our Classes and Events Calendar for current information.

Please be prepared for weather conditions and sun exposure. Persons with a disability requiring special accommodation while participating in this event may call the Extension office at 509-667-6540. If accommodation is not requested 10 days in advance, we cannot guarantee accommodation on-site.
