New Program Coordinator Announced

King County Master Gardener Program

 

Today’s message from our King County Interim Coordinators:

Fellow Master Gardeners,

We are very happy to announce on behalf of Todd Murray, WSU Agriculture and Natural Resources Unit Director, that we have successfully recruited Mary Watts as the new WSU King County Master Gardener Program Coordinator.  Her first day of work will be November 1, 2019.

Mary said:

I joined the Master Gardener program with the 2017 class of Interns and have been part of the Woodland Park Zoo Clinic in Seattle since that time. I love everything about the Master Gardener program and am thrilled to now make it my vocation.

I am deeply grateful to Penny Kriese and Carrie Hill for their leadership and hard work as interim co-coordinators and look forward to collaborating with them and all of you as we continue to develop and steward the Master Gardener program of King County.

We welcome Mary and look forward to working with her over the next several weeks as we make this transition in leadership. She will be joining us at the Recognition Event on October 27 at Bellevue Botanical Garden.

Carrie & Penny

WSU Ext Pubs website

We are all aware of the unintended consequences resulting from WSU upgrading their WSU Extension publication website and the adoption of a new web-based store platform for the Extension publications. Changes have recently been made to their new website. It is now possible to download copies of the free PDF publications without setting up an account.

Use the Download Now link for the digital version of a publication to access and download available PDF files.WSU Ext Publications Download Now feature

NOTE: Hortsense and Pestsense links are not affected at this time. Links on the Gardening in Washington State site, http://gardening.wsu.edu/, have been updated.

The URL for that new WSU publications platform is:  http://pubs.extension.wsu.edu

We will continue to work to make access easier and more readily available to King County Master Gardeners in our clinics, gardens and at other events. Watch this website for these updates. [Oct. 22, 2019]
