Our Program

The Master Gardener program began in 1973 as a Washington State University extension-based program focusing on training volunteers to diagnose horticultural problems in the community. Today, Master Gardeners are actively addressing plant and insect problems as well as presenting programs that address critical issues for Okanogan County citizens. These include sustainable gardening practices, safe pest management practices, drought tolerant gardens and landscaping, urban forestry, planting for fire protection.
