October 5th Program
Concerned about the use of pesticides in your garden? Our next program will explore how to have a pesticide free home and garden including an overview of ecologically sound alternatives to pesticides on common pests such as ants, rodents, weeds, slugs and snails. The speaker will be Megan Dunn, Healthy People and Communities program director for the Northwest Center for Alternatives to Pesticides (NCAP), a regional policy and environment organization serving Oregon and Washington.
November 2nd Program
WOW!! CISCOE MORRIS is coming to town! This event is being sponsored jointly by the Coupeville and Greenbank Garden Clubs. Both garden clubs will meet at the Coupeville Rec Hall for this special presentation. Ciscoe Morris is a well known NW gardening guru! He is recognized nationally for his gardening expertise and his wit and humor as he points out gardening triumphs and pitfalls for the NorthWest gardener.
Application to Volunteer
Since the greenhouse is on school property, all members who work at the greenhouse are required to complete and sign a Coupeville School District No. 204 Application to Volunteer form. Copies of the form will be available at our Jan 5th meeting. A copy of the complete packet of information (which should be read before signing) will also be available at the meeting and will be emailed to members. It is also available on our website here».
Pesticides & Other Chemicals
As a reminder, in order to remain in compliance with the Agriculture Department, any chemicals or pesticides that you use when you work at the greenhouse must be returned to the shed when you are done.
We are always on the lookout for content for our website. If anyone has gardening tips, gardening book or tool recommendations, recipes, articles, photos or anything else that might be of interest to visitors of the site and to our members, please contact one of the club's board members.

I have two hibiscus plants to give to an interested person. They are currently 30" by 30". I had them indoors in full sun in Spokane and they bloomed like crazy, but in our new home here in Coupeville, I can't get enough sun for them. They are currently outside and safe from the deer. The deer do eat hibiscus. If you are interested, please e-mail me: email@example.comLydia Blakeway

Just found this-really nice job on the website. Is it possible to add the Coupeville Library in as a link for resources? - www.sno-isle.org. We have some fabulous books, etc. Also, the Garden Club has been a partner for years with various aspects of our landscape at the library and I have lost the Burtons who were doing my two barrels. Would anyone there be interesting in managing these for the library? Please give me a call at 678-4911, ext 6120. Thanks so much!Nancy Holbrook

OK, I'm not a member (Mildred's daughter), but I proofread pretty well. The site looks impressive, but it would be even more so if a few spelling errors/typos were corrected. (poen, montly, are instead of "our") Pretty passionate bit on orchids...I'm rooting (no pun intended) for them to outlive humans.Bert
