Our Annual Native Plant Sale Storefront is Open!
Our annual Native Plant Sale pre-order has begun! Visit our online storefront here.
Please note that we've shortened our preorder timeframe this year, and will close the storefront on December 30, 2020.
We have over 30 species of plants this year, including wildflower starts from Pacific Rim Institute for the first time!
Pick-up will be at the Greenbank Farm. We will have 3 staggered time slots for pick-up, to reduce the number of customers picking up at once. Customers will choose a time slot using a link available at checkout.
Not sure what to choose for your garden or project? Check out our Native Plants page for plants lists and resources before you buy.

COVID19 Return to Work for WICD
As Island County phases in to working life, WICD is following all guidance and protocols from Governor Inslee, Island County, and the Washington State Conservation Commission. Our office will remain closed to public walk-ins and our staff will continue to work remotely when possible.
A staff person is in the office during business hours to answer phone calls, and our natural resource planners are scheduling site visits and working in the field again, following social distancing protocols as prescribed. If you’d like to schedule a site visit on your farm or property, or call us with a question, please do! We are here to help and looking forward to safely visiting with community members again.
If you're not quite ready for an in-person visit, our website includes all our printed resource materials, and our planners are available over email to chat about management practices for your forest, yard, water, farm, and ranch. You can also find us on Facebook and Instagram, where we will continue to share community information, district updates, and outdoor inspiration. Stay in touch and stay safe, Whidbey!
WICD will be holding an election for a board supervisor position on Feb. 2, 2021. All registered voters residing on Whidbey Island may vote for the supervisor position, which we will hold by mail-in ballot due to COVID19.
If you are interested in running for the supervisor position, or in requesting a mail-in ballot to vote in the election, please visit here to learn more!
New Video Series!
We have a new video series out that answers the number one question we hear: what are conservation districts and what do we do? Over the next few weeks, we'll post videos sharing some of the work we do and the conservation practices that we promote. Find the videos here, on Youtube and on Instagram.

Although we won't be able to get together in person for our annual winter gathering and gift exchange, let's meet up online and have a friendly and fun competition between farms. Which farm or team will be the WIGA Trivia Champs? Think you have what it takes? Join us!
