1st Saturday with Master Gardeners – Finding Ideas for Your Garden in Ours
May 4 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
**CHANGE** Park in the grassy area at the front of Grays Harbor Fairgrounds (Elma), enter through the front gate, and walk to the Master Gardener Demonstration Garden. The workshop will not be held in the WSU Extension Office. (There is a $5 parking fee in the paved fair parking area for those attending the dog show.)
Come join the Master Gardeners of Grays Harbor and Pacific Counties for the third and final spring 1st Saturday Workshops with Master Gardeners.
Workshop participants will be encouraged to tour the award winning demo garden to get information and discover landscape design ideas for the home garden. The Master Gardeners will share background on the history of the demonstration garden, then let people explore on their own. Master Gardeners will be present to discuss different areas of the garden, speaking about the process of designing these sections, their special features, and highlighting the plants that have successfully grown here. Areas of focus include: the native plant garden, the raised beds, the green house, the pollinator garden, the hillside (woody shrubs), the wetland, and the xeriscape.
At the end participants will reconvene for a short presentation on the raised beds. Participants will leave the workshop with a tomato plant or another type of plant if we run out of tomatoes.
*People will need to dress for the weather!
The workshop will be held at the WSU Extension Master Gardener Demonstration Garden located adjacent to the Fine Arts building at the Grays Harbor County Fairgrounds. (If weather is inclement, the workshop will be held in the WSU Extension Grays Harbor Office meeting rooms.)
After the workshop there will be a Plant Clinic in the meeting room. The Plant Clinic team will be there to research any questions you might have. If you do have a plant question, please bring a sample of that plant with you, preferably in a sealed plastic bag. Bring your gardening questions or bring examples of problems you are experiencing in your garden.
Reasonable accommodations will be made for persons with disabilities and special needs who contact Toni Gwin, WSU Extension, P.O. Box 88, South Bend, WA 98586, 360 875-9331; firstname.lastname@example.org at least two weeks prior to the event.
