The Woodinville Water District (WWD), in it is partnership with the WSU Extension Master Gardener Program and the Saving Water Partnership, is holding monthly seminars through September.

The next class will be held on August 6 from 10 – 11:30 a.m, at the Woodinville Water District’s office, located at 17238 NE Woodinville-Duvall Road in Woodinville.

There will be time after the class for questions and answers.

"Sustainable Gardening" will be taught by Ladd Smith, horticulturist and co-owner of In Harmony Sustainable Landscapes, a provider of organic based landscape services.

Come and learn how our landscapes and gardens can contribute to your sustainable lifestyle.

You will learn about healthy soils and their contribution to the garden.

You will also learn about storm water management ideas like rain gardens and cisterns. Ladd will also discuss natural yard care techniques, raising food in your garden and even aerobic gardening. The landscapes of the future will help us as individuals and communities reduce our carbon footprints, reduce toxins in our environment and clean our water.

Learn the steps to creating a sustainable landscape and garden.

Before and after the class, Master Gardeners will be on hand to answer all your gardening and garden pest questions at their plant clinic. You do not have to attend the class to come talk to a master gardener.

They will be available from 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Master Gardeners are volunteers, trained by WSU, to provide research-based information to home gardeners on environmentally friendly gardening practices and safe pest control.

Attendance is free, but is limited to the first 50 registrants, so you must pre-register.
