Now in its 33rd year, the Whidbey Gardening Workshop once again brings together gardeners who share a passion for plants and dedication to creating environments of beauty and bounty. The Whidbey Gardening Workshop is noted for presenting a great selection of classes for the casual as well as avid gardener. Among topics covered are edibles—vegetables and fruit, ornamental gardening, maintenance and sustainability, gardening basics, and garden design.

Enjoy a weekend of small on-site classes and field trips as well as webinar sessions—all taught by respected educators and professionals.

On Friday, March 4, you can select from six interactive field trips, each exploring a unique gardening topic. Learn first-hand from gardening experts at locations on and around Whidbey Island.

On Saturday, March 5, following an engaging keynote presentation by Dan Hinkley, you will be able to attend three of the 30 small, in-person, focused classes taught by expert instructors. Between classes, join with fellow gardeners in exploring the Spring Garden Marketplace with a delightful collection of plants, garden art, books, gifts and other gardening items. Bring your questions to the Master Gardener Plant Clinic. Grab a cup of coffee and check out the raffle items and other activities.  
For the health and safety of all participants, the Whidbey Gardening Workshop will require all on-site participants to show proof of their full COVID-19 vaccination and to wear a mask while in the Workshop, Garden Marketplace, and Field Trips. Please see our FAQ for full details.

On Sunday, March 6, you can participate in three of the 12 webinar classes on unique garden topics on your home computer, followed by three weeks of access to recordings of the classes. Two free mini-events during the lunch break — a Master Gardener Plant Clinic and “Gardening for Life” — offer additional opportunities for learning and gardening consultation.
The Whidbey Gardening Workshop is produced and presented by the Island County Master Gardener Foundation. Master Gardeners are active throughout Whidbey and Camano islands.
