Edgar County Master Gardeners
University of Illinois Extension Master Gardeners are adult members of
the local community who are interested in lawns, trees, shrubs, flowers,
gardens, vegetables and the environment. You can become a Master
Gardener if you are willing to learn about horticulture, share that
research-based information with others, and volunteer at least 30 hours
annually back to the community. The University of Illinois provides
invaluable training and educational opportunities to assist you in
meeting these goals. The annual training, usually beginning in January,
involves 60 hours of online or classroom instruction over a period of
11 or 12 weeks.
Edgar County Master Gardeners are a dynamic group of individuals who share an enthusiasm for horticulture - from moon gardens to civic improvements. Our projects are visible in many locations throughout Edgar County.
If you are interested in the Master Gardening program, please contact Rusty Nave, University of Illinois Extension Ag & Natural Resources Program Coordinator, at email@example.com or 217-826-5422.
