from Your Diagnostic Clinic Team
The 2014 Plant Diagnostic Clinics have been scheduled, and we have a couple of updates and a great opportunity to announce. This year’s clinic will be organized by Ervine Munroe with the assistance of Kate Yturri, Julia Turney and Kristie Jacobs. We will be alternating the meeting coordination between Ervine, Kate and Julia.
The first meeting will be Thursday, April 17, 9:00 a.m. to 11 a.m. and is a general orientation meeting for all Master Gardeners. If you haven’t had a chance to come to the clinics in the past, this is a great opportunity for everyone to learn how the clinics are organized, the equipment and references resources available for plant problem diagnosis, and to meet your fellow master gardeners from around the County. From May 1st through September 25th we’ll be meeting the first and third Thursdays from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. in the Extension Community room in Friday Harbor.
These clinics benefit our County community and are fun! It is definitely a fun half-day excursion to Friday Harbor from Lopez, Orcas and Shaw Islands. The clinics have the additional benefit of sharpening our skills and giving us more confidence answering questions from the public at our farmers markets. Don’t hesitate — join the group and please come to the orientation meeting to learn more about the clinics. But don’t worry if you can’t make it — there is plenty of help at every meeting if you’re new to the clinics.
Keep track of clinic dates on our Calendar page. All San Juan County Master Gardeners and MG Interns are welcome! If you have any questions, contact Ervine Munroe at jcemunroe @ rockisland dot com.
