Whidbey Gardening Workshop is offering four unique and engaging field trips. These are hands-on experiences “in the field” rather than classroom presentations. They offer gardening topics of key interest for every home gardener, including propagation from seeds, pruning, composting, and rhododendrons.
You can sign up for as many as two field trips - one in the morning, and one in the afternoon. You are responsible for your own transportation to and from field trip locations. All locations are within a one-hour drive from Oak Harbor. Because the field trips are in March, the weather will be unpredictable. Hope for sun, but dress for rain or snow!
Each field trip costs $20. Space is limited so register early. Choose from the following field trips:
10 am to 12 noon, choose between:
FA1 - Hot Composting, by Tom Vincent, at South Whidbey Tilth
FA2 - All About Seeds!, by Anza Muenchow, at Master Gardener Educational Gardens at Greenbank Farm
1:30 pm to 3:30 pm, choose between: Both afternoon workshops are FULL
FP1 - Hands-on Pruning Basics, by Ed and Martha Hollis at Master Gardener Educational Gardens at Greenbank Farm
FP2 - Redesigning a Mature Garden, by Frank Simpson, at Meerkerk Gardens
How to Register
