Whidbey Island Gardening Workshop
Mar 3, 2018 Oak Harbor High School
Garden club members have already started creating garden art for sale at the Whidbey Island Gardening Workshop. This will replace our annual Plant sale normally held in the spring.
We want to acquaint the public, young and old alike, of the many educational and creative opportunities and the projects the Club does that benefit Oak Harbor.
Each year members begin making wreaths the week before Thanksgiving. We cut greens donated by local tree farms and member homes. Pine cones are also collected and donated and the bows are made by Marali Woessner, who volunteers her time for our wreaths. The proceeds from our wreath sales goes to civic and beautification projects around Oak Harbor. Delivery and pickup begins the first week of Dec. Wreaths sell out FAST, so order yours early. Contact us through this website or our Facebook page. Price is $25.
In addition to the greens that go into making our wreaths, we also collect pinecones. If you have a pine tree with cones (not fir) about palm size and you would like to donate them, let us know and we can arrange to pick them up or let you know where to drop them off. Same applies to the greens. We use Douglas fir and soon we will have our fall winds and many of the greens will be lying around in your yard. Bag them up and contact us here.
Civic Improvement projects are funded by up to 50 percent each year from the proceeds of our fundraisers.
The Country Store
The Country Store is a favorite feature among our monthly meetings. We bring in items we no longer use in hopes someone else will get more life out of them. Proceeds from these sales also go to fund our projects.
The store opens promptly at 9am.
