Mayor's Wellness Challenge



 A free community activity every month of the year!

The Mayor’s Wellness Challenge has been reimagined in 2017 to celebrate
and grow our community spirit over the course of the entire year, with a
special event or activity highlighted each month!

We encourage everyone to come out and participate - celebrating together strengthens our community connections, fosters neighborliness, and
highlights everything that is great about our city. We look forward to
seeing you in the months ahead!

Check back here for all the latest details on monthly activities, or “like” us

Fall and Winter Gardens Start in Summer!
Monday, July 24, 6pm
Mount Vernon City Library, 315 Snoqualmie Street

How would you like to enjoy fresh-picked carrots in December? Savor spinach, kale and other greens throughout the winter? Harvest broccoli and cauliflower late into the year? You can - if you plant in July and August. Join Valerie Rose, WSU Skagit Master Gardener, to learn why a fall garden must be started in the summer; which varieties are best for late-season harvest; and strategies for protecting your garden from frost and cold. New and experienced gardeners alike will learn how to extend the growing season well into the cold months.
