Got gardening questions? We've got answers!

Our programs are designed to help gardeners in Columbia County on topics of interest to area gardeners--such as composting and pruning. We also have Garden Calendars, a list of activities organized by month. Our website includes links to other garden-related websites. For more information check out our eNews newsletter, or the Gardening Encyclopedia.


Each month we put out a newsletter called Country Living.

If you enjoy gardening and want to share that enjoyment with others in your community, consider becoming an OSU Extension Service Master GardenerTM. After completing the training, you can help Extension faculty educate and advise other home gardeners throughout Columbia County.

One of our featured publications is "Grow Your Own." It is a practical guide to gardening in Oregon. It will get you ready and give you tips on what, how, and when to plant your garden. You can find it online at this link Grow your own.
