Master Gardener Resource Center to Re-Open April
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. Beginning Monday, April 15th, the master gardeners will be back in the Farm Bureau office to answer questions from members and the general public related to gardening and horticulture. This program will run through mid-November of 2019.
Master Gardeners will be available in the Cook County Farm Bureau suite located at 6438 Joliet Rd., Countryside Illinois, during the office hours of 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM on Mondays and Thursdays of each week. The master gardeners will be accessible by contacting the Cook County Farm Bureau at 708-354-3276 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org .
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.
