Earth School Activities

Ask a Master Gardener

Highly recognized, diverse and fully supported, WSU Master Gardener volunteers in King County are the go-to resource for home gardeners seeking research-based, innovative solutions for their horticulture and environmental stewardship questions. We are able to advise you on a variety of issues you may face in your home garden space. This might include how to select the right plant for the right space, management of plant health in both ornamental and edible gardening spaces, water conservation and soil health, and growing healthy vegetables. We meet the public in our "Ask a Master Gardener" plant clinics, and also teach a variety of online programs.

CLIMB A TREE!

Join Tree Time to explore the lush green canopy of a great graceful oak tree named Alice. Watch the river flow by below as blue herons slowly stalk a slippery snack. Climb up the rope system into the tree canopy using a tried and true climbing style for new climbers known as Double Rope Technique, good for climbers age 6 to 96. Join us and let life slow down, experience Tree Time.

Explore Green Building Materials

The Built Green Certification Program of Washington State will be featuring information and green building materials on our table. We will also be providing info graphics, an email sign-up sheet, and showcasing for our upcoming Built Green Conference. The building materials that will be featured will be samples of sustainable flooring, decking, cabinets, and counter tops.
