University of Illinois Extension Educators Recognized for Small Farms Webinar Series

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

December 4, 2017

University of Illinois Extension Educators that serve Jo Daviess, Stephenson, and Winnebago Counties were recognized on a statewide level by University of Illinois Extension for their contributions to the Small Farms Winter Webinar series.

“The webinar series lets Extension Educators cover a particular topic for new and experienced fruit, vegetable, livestock, and other farmers,” states Grant McCarty, Local Foods and Small Farms Extension Educator and one of the educators recognized for his contributions. “Many of the topics are those that have been presented in person locally but were modified to be delivered statewide during the winter.”

Each week, a Local Foods and Small Farms Educator, Horticulture Educator, or Energy and Environmental Stewardship Educator presents a different topic. Participants throughout the Midwest view these free webinars via their computer.

Along with McCarty, Jay Solomon, Energy and Environmental Stewardship Educator, and Candice Hart, Horticulture Educator, were recognized for the Team Excellence Award presented on November 30th at the University of Illinois Extension Annual Conference in Champaign.
