Help Needed for MG Helpline and Garfield Park Plant Clinic

Posted by Ron Wolford -

Master Gardeners,

As the growing season comes to a close the public has more questions than ever for our Master Gardener helplines.

Please consider coming to the Ag School office from 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. , Monday, Wednesday or Friday (or any other weekday) There will be plenty for you to do, and using the new extension website http://search.extension.org/ makes answering questions easy.

Call Julie at 773-233-0476 to set up a day to volunteer.

If you need to earn volunteer hours, the time to do this is NOW. This opportunity won't be available in November and December.

The Plant Clinic set up at Garfield Park Conservatory is much more enjoyable than when we were in that tiny office. The table in the foyer makes for a pleasant day interacting with the Conservatory visitors. We are open every Saturday from noon until 4:00 p.m. every week of the year.

Please contact Jackie Paine, msjlpaine@aol.com to volunteer.

You need to report your Volunteer and Continuing Education hours by December 15,2008. Time goes by quickly. Don't wait too long to complete them.
