Ask Me​

Master Gardener volunteers will be wearing green aprons and are available to answer general questions. You will also see Master Gardener volunteers with “Ask Me” buttons. If you have questions, need directions, or have a problem of any kind, flag down one of these individuals. They are there specifically to help you.

Package Storage​

Your Marketplace purchases can be stored while you attend classes saving extra trips to your car. Just drop off your purchases at the Package Storage table and it will be held for you until you pick it up. Coats may also be stored while you attend the workshop, although hangers may not be available.

If you lose or find an item, go to the Lost and Found table located at Package Storage in the Marketplace. They can also take your contact info and notify you if it is found after the Workshop closes.

Water and Waste​ 

Oak Harbor High School requires that we not have any open containers for water or coffee. You can help by bringing closed containers for your beverages. If you forget to bring your own, closed containers are available to purchase in our Bookstore and Master Gardener Store. Only water is allowed in classrooms.


Whidbey Gardening Workshop will have waste disposal containers for discarding your trash. Thank you for using them.
