WSU Extension Snohomish       by Lorine Brakken 

The Snohomish County WSU website has a wealth of information for home gardeners in our area.  It is located at WSU Snohomish County Extension in Everett.  Great things to find at the website are:

  • Direct links to the WSU Plant Pest Leaflet Series – info on local insects! 
  • Once-a-month ‘Bugs & Blights’ workshop having both lab and field time on timely local garden issues,
  • ‘Preserving the Harvest’ 5 part workshop starting in June
  • Master Beekeeping classes coming up soon! 
  • Drip Irrigation class on April 8th is 1pm -3:30pm and again 6pm – 8:30pm.  Learn how to develop your yard for easy maintenance and low water usage.  Regular watering for fruit trees is very important through the summer and if we can conserve water using drip irrigation, all the better.  Cost is $20/per person, or $25/2 people sharing materials, pre-registration required. To register download the form at registrationform.pdf and mail with your check, or call Karie Christensen at (425) 338-2400, e-mail
