Introducing Selinda Barkhuis, Local Gardener

2019 is just around the corner and with that, I want to wrap up 2018 with wishing
prosecutor Nichols the very best of luck with his next term.

In challenging Nichols for the position of prosecutor, I sought to highlight the key role that county prosecutors serve in safekeeping the right of each and every one of us to be treated equally, fairly, and consistently.   It’s a tough job, no question about it, and I sincerely wish Mark the very best.

As for me, it has been a tremendous honor to serve the people of Clallam County for fourteen years as a county employee and as an elected official.

But it’s time to move on, and I have decided to take this opportunity to completely switch gears, from the rule of law to the rule of nature, by pursuing and sharing my passion for subsistence gardening, which will be the subject of this website going forward.

In the meantime, I want to thank all who supported me in my tenure as county treasurer and in my quest to be elected county prosecutor!   See you around the garden!
