Master Gardeners help solve plant problems

Where do you find your local Master Gardener diagnostic clinic? Each WSU county with an active Master Gardening community has volunteers that provide diagnostic help.

Connecting People, Resources and Knowledge

WSU Extension programs connect the people and communities of Island County with the knowledge base of Washington State University to promote quality of life and advance economic well-being through fostering inquiry, learning, and the application of research.


 Master Gardeners share plant knowledge with Camano Residents

Master Gardeners were available to answer gardening questions during their first “Ask a Master Gardener” plant clinic at the Camano Plaza Ace Hardware last Saturday.  Master Gardeners receive college-level training by WSU in exchange for sharing that information with the public.  Participants reported that there were a constant flow of questions, interesting specimens and gorgeous weather!  A good time was had by all.

You can ask your questions of Master Gardeners at any of the remaining plant clinics scheduled this summer on Camano and Whidbey Islands.
