Master Gardener Meet-N-Greet In Nashville November 17


The Illinois Master Gardener program has been active for over forty years in Illinois. University of Illinois Master Gardener program classes begin January 24. The program is designed to teach area residents about many aspects of gardening including: perennials; annuals; botany; trees and shrubs; organic gardening; insects and disease; lawns; soils; fruits; vegetables; and so much more.

Each year the Extension Unit serving Bond, Clinton, Marion, Jefferson and Washington Counties offers this training to interested gardeners. You do not need a college degree, or years of experience. All you need is a sincere desire to learn and share information about gardening, and be willing to devote time to volunteering and on-going training.

The Meet-n-Greets are planned to give residents an opportunity to drop-in to learn more about the program. Current Master Gardeners and staff will be on hand to answer questions. Please stop by one of three convenient locations for the Meet-n-Greets to learn how you can be part of this exciting program.
