WSU Master Gardeners celebrate 40 as Pacific County Fair continues today and tomorrow in Menlo

WSU Master Gardeners ProgramMENLO, Wash. – The WSU Master Gardener Program is 40 Years Old, and they’re celebrating tomorrow at the Pacific County Fair in Menlo. They’re inviting you to bring your stories of being a Master Gardener, attending a Master Gardener presentation, or calling WSU Extension to get a solution to a gardening question.
WSU Master Gardener Program started in Pierce & King Counties and the first class was held in 1973. No one realized that the idea of training volunteers to provide other community members with research based solutions to gardening questions would spread to all 50 states & many other countries.
Be a part of the celebration. Tell your stories, connect with former Master Gardeners, wish WSU Master Gardeners another 40 years of service, bring your questions or stop by to say, ”Hi”. Make it part of your day at the Pacific County Fair.
