Clallam County Masters Gardeners visited Greywolf Elementary School last week with seeds, soil and science to share with students from Renee Mullikin, Cathy Raycraft and Alexandria Ogilvie's classrooms.
Master Gardeners are local volunteers and self-professed avid gardeners who undergo a thorough training program before they are allowed to help other area gardeners. They host plant clinics at the Co-op Farm & Garden store on Saturdays from April-September, maintain a demonstration garden off Woodcock Road and at the water reuse site near Carrie Blake Park, host compost training and more.
For the 14th year, Clallam's gardeners are in local elementary schools. Once a week, from March 10-May 5 (except spring break), they visit Sequim, Port Angeles, Forks and Neah Bay youths, teaching them the science behind plant growth and the importance of plants to humans.
Next week, they visit with four classes at Helen Haller Elementary School.
