"Regenerative Gardening: Saving the Planet One Garden at a Time," by the Whistling Gardener

Have you heard of “regenerative agriculture?" I hadn’t until recently, but after a bit of research, I realized that this “new” movement is at its base just an expansion of organic gardening and farming principles that can be adapted from commercial agriculture to our very own backyards. Here are some components of this style of gardening that we should all take to heart…

"Compost, It’s What Makes our Gardens Survive Extreme Weather," by the Whistling Gardener

Recently I had one of my readers reach out to me and inquire about how all the weather extremes of 2021 might impact our gardening experiences in 2022. It is a good question that is worth exploring, especially since I suspect this won’t be the last time we see such extremes in temperature, rainfall, and snow. Here are some of my thoughts…

Mill Creek Women’s Club welcomes 2022 with a Virtual January Program

Due to the increase and spread of the Omicron variant of COVID-19, we have elected to keep our members, guests, and speaker safe so we're returning to a Zoom Virtual meeting for the month of January.

"Lobby Sales at the Mill Creek Library are back!" By Marge Rhodes

FINALLY, the Friends of the Mill Creek Library (“the Friends”) are back in business in the lobby of the Mill Creek Library.

"One of the most delightful things about a garden is the anticipation it provides,” by the Whistling Gardener

I don’t know how you all feel about 2021, but for me it was like circling the airport waiting for clearance to land and never getting it. Oh sure, we made a couple of approaches and were really close to touching down, but then at the last minute the tower waved us off.

Writer and gardening expert W.E. Johns once stated, "One of the most delightful things about a garden is the anticipation it provides.”

I stepped outside the other day before the big snow and made a mental list of what I am anticipating in my garden. Here are a few of my observations…

Edmonds College Art Gallery to feature Whidbey Island artist

The Edmonds College Art Gallery’s winter exhibit showcases the work of Monica Lynn James, a Whidbey Island artist and EC instructor. The exhibit features a series of paintings and collages that reflect on the history of Indigenous Americans and recent forest fires in California.

The Edmonds College Art Gallery’s exhibit will showcase the work of Monica Lynn James, a Whidbey Island artist and Edmonds College instructor.

However, the college has made the difficult decision to remain in remote operations through March 18th, the end of winter quarter. This means that the Art Gallery will be closed to visitors until at least then.
