The Evergreen Thumb Podcast is brought to you by Washington State University Extension Master Gardener program volunteers and sponsored by the Master Gardener Foundation of Washington State.

Since 1973, WSU Extension Master Gardeners have been developing programs to address the evolving needs of our communities. The Evergreen Thumb podcast is here to share up-to-date research-based horticulture and environmental stewardship knowledge to help you grow and manage your garden and to share what the WSU Extension Master Gardener program is all about. New episodes are released every 2 weeks. In each episode, we’ll explore various topics tailored to our unique climate and diverse flora. Whether you’re an experienced gardener with a green thumb or a beginner eager to cultivate your own green oasis, this podcast is here to inspire and educate.

Join us as we invite expert horticulturists, seasoned Master Gardeners, and passionate plant enthusiasts to share their wisdom, practical tips, and hands-on experiences. We’ll cover everything from plant selection and care, sustainable gardening practices, organic pest control, and landscaping design to tackling common challenges specific to our region.
