South Whidbey Garden Club is celebrating 70 years of gardening on Whidbey Island.

The club has grown from a handful of members to 105.

Members and guests attend monthly meetings held from September to June.

Guest speakers give talks on various gardening topics, such as beneficial insects, plants to brighten up shady areas, or using foliage from our own gardens to create holiday arrangements.

Sharing, participation and getting involved is encouraged.

This year’s “Plant-tastic-sale” is 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 27 at Bayview Community Hall.

Offerings include great plants at great prices, freshly baked goods, garden art, books and items, garden-related products from nine local vendors and a chance to win a wonderful raffle package donated from 17 local businesses.

The Master Gardeners Plant Clinic will also be available to answer gardening questions.

Purchases made at the plant sale help fund nonprofits throughout South Whidbey for horticulture-related projects such as educational programs, beautification projects and student scholarships.

South Whidbey Garden Club was originally organized in 1949 to create an interest in gardening and to inspire an appreciation in others for flowers and birds so that South Whidbey Island will be an even more beautiful place to live.
