Master Gardeners staff the WSU Extension 78th Street Heritage Farm answer clinic four days a week, Tuesday through Friday. Working in pairs, they use diagnostic techniques, a microscope, a large print library, and the internet to research questions that come in via phone, email or in-person. New trainees are required to serve four shifts in the clinic. Answer Clinic Enthusiasts (ACES) are veteran volunteers who enjoy the challenge of solving garden questions and commit to serving at least one shift a month.
