WSU/Chelan County Master Gardeners Linda Sarratt, left, and Linda Morse take a close-up look at damaged leaves during a diagnosis clinic.

WSU Chelan Douglas Master Gardeners volunteer in many ways to help community members create sustainable landscapes. The activity I am involved in most often is the Diagnostic Clinic.

Each year, hundreds of North Central Washington citizens contact us either by e-mail or phone. They show up at the Community Education Garden on Thursday evenings from 4 to 6 p.m. or on the Third Saturday events to have a Master Gardner demystify a plant problem. Often people say to us, “I didn’t think you would answer these types of questions.”
