Master Gardener Resource Center Continues to Assist Members During the Fall Season

09/05/2023 @ 2:00 pm

The Cook County Farm Bureau® and the University of Illinois Extension continue to partner on a project that benefits local Farm Bureau members and the general public. Since April 15, the master gardeners have been back (working virtually) to answer questions from members and the general public related to gardening and horticulture. This dedicated group will continue to respond to questions through mid-November of 2023.


The master gardeners will be accessible by emailing [email protected] or by contacting the Cook County Farm Bureau at 708-354-3276.


General topic areas that can be addressed include soil test recommendations, plant disease issues and treatments, horticulture related questions, pest identification and treatment, and more. Commercial related questions will be forwarded to the University of Illinois Extension professional staff.
