What To Do at Greenbank Farm
The Greenbank Farm is fortunate to have its gardens tended by two wonderful gardening groups: The Greenbank Garden Club and WSU Master Gardeners.
Designed, maintained and managed by Master Gardeners, the educational garden’s mission is to educate the public on best home gardening practices and to encourage their application. The educational program includes demonstrating environmentally responsible gardening, providing ideas for planning and maintaining gardens, experimenting with new plants and techniques, conducting workshops and serving as a resource for all gardeners, from beginner to experienced.
