Thank you.




What Covid-19 safety practices will be in use?


Plant order pickups at Whidbey and Camano locations will be outdoors and done by appointment only to limit the number of people gathering at one time. Island County Master Gardeners will assist you with your pickup and will be wearing masks and appreciate that you do the same. Limited onsite activities may be available if conditions allow for you to ask plant questions.
