Plant Clinic Task Force

Posted by Ron Wolford -

How can we revitalize the Garfield Park Conservatory Plant Clinic to provide more comprehensive service to the public and still have a rewarding experience for Master Gardener volunteers?

This is the scope of the newly formed Plant Clinic Task Force. Concerns with our present Plant Clinic range from the cluttered office to the problem of funneling all client plant questions into the clinic from many diverse sources.

The Plant Clinic Task Force had it's first meeting on Saturday, February 24 at the District 4 Extension office at 300 North Elizabeth Street. A complete report on this meeting will follow.

Task Force members include; Jackie Paine, the Plant Clinic Committee chairperson, Master Gardeners, Beth Botts, David Depue, Pam Rock, Maja Ramirez and Wil Rutt. Master Gardener Coordinator, Elizabeth Bruhns, Horticulture Educators Ron Wolford and Matthew Kostelnick also serve on this committee.
