HEALTHY ISLAND YOUTH INITIATIVE SCHOLARSHIP FUNDThe Healthy Island Youth Initiative (HIYI) Committee is pleased to announce that it recently received generous donations from Island Thrift, Soroptimist International of Oak Harbor, and Wal-Mart, and an anonymous South Whidbey donor. These donations will support ongoing efforts to keep organized healthy activities affordable for all local youth in Island County.
The HIYI Scholarship Fund addresses these needs by helping cover the cost of registration fees, equipment and/or other expenses so that youth in Island County can participate in organized physical activities, regardless of their family’s economic status.
The South Whidbey Parks & Aquatics Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization, has kindly agreed to become the fiscal agent for HIYI, and will now receive, hold and distribute funds upon direction from the HIYI committee.
Donations to this fund may now be tax deductible. Donations to the scholarship fund can be made payable to South Whidbey Parks & Aquatics Foundation, and should be mailed to PO Box 157, Freeland, WA 98249, with a note on the memo line directing it to the “HIYI Scholarship Fund”.
Any Whidbey Island youth may apply for the assistance to participate in any organized sport or physical activity. The needs-based scholarships are awarded based on financial criteria and commitment to the activity. Those interested in receiving financial assistance should call Carrie at (360) 221-6788 or visit www.islandcountyahc.org/Page/43 and print off an application.

DWARF CONIFERS & DRIP IRRIGATION Seminar & Tour
ADULTS & YOUTH AGES 16+Using plants both in the garden and in pots borrowed from Bayview Farm & Garden, we’ll explore the great variety possible with both dwarf and miniature conifers. We will highlight use of contrasts in shape, colors, textures, and required care, as well as placement suggestions. We will also recommend good sources and references. Warning: These plants can be addictive!
Drip Irrigation, which Rod calls “the best adult tinker toy set,” is almost essential for any garden on berms or hillsides (to avoid runoff ) or in gardens of great size. It is very easy to install and maintain if kept simple. Inexpensive timers allow gardeners to go “on vacation” and travel worry-free. No winter protection is required. We will see how 76-year-old Rod does it and he’ll recommend good sources both local and on-line. Please bring a pad and pencil or pen. Uncertain Weather? Call Rod at (206) 909-3965 for determination.
Instructor: Rod Parke has vast experience with teaching about conifers. He has studied under renowned horticulturists and worked in the nursery trade, and his passion is contagious. Email: [email protected]
Location: Indoor and outdoor at a private home and garden in Langley. Address given after registering. • Min 4 / Max 15 §

OYSTER GARDENINGLearn to cultivate these seafood gems!
ADULTS & YOUTH AGES 16+Discover the fun and satisfaction of cultivating your own oyster garden on your beach. You will learn about suitable beaches, gear used, oyster types, and health and environmental considerations. You will assemble gear for your garden and receive oyster seed to begin growing oysters.
The class will be held over three weekend days, including a visit to an oyster garden and classroom time. Gardening experience is very helpful and will help you understand the attention required to maintain your oyster garden. What to bring: boots for beach, gloves, weather appropriate attire, and pictures of your own beach.
Participants should have access to a private beach suitable for oyster growing, either through ownership or agreement with the owner. Suitable beaches have a firm gravel or cobble substrate at the 0 to +4 foot tide level and are not exposed to excessive wave action. Sandy beaches are less suitable but can grow oysters for a gardener determined to put in more work. Many suitable beaches are found in Holmes Harbor and Saratoga Passage.
Instructor: Kurt Johnson has spent over 30 years in the shellfish farming industry from owning a mussel and oyster farm to developing nursery and grow-out systems for mussels, oysters, scallops and geoducks in the US, Mexico and Canada. He has also
provided biological services for shellfish farming of clams, mussels, oysters, and geoducks. Email: [email protected]
