Interns: Turf Class at Westchester Extension Office

Posted by Ron Wolford -

As you know we did not have a Turf class during our training. You have been invited to join the Master Gardener Turf class training at the Westchester ExtensionOffice.

The class will be on Saturday, April 7 from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. The class will be taught by Matt Kostelnick, Horticulture Educator.

If you want to attend this class, please reserve a space by e-mailing Elizabeth Bruhns at or sign up on Monday during our class at Garfield. The classroom can hold an additional 60 people.

We get a high percentage of questions about turf grass into our office, Ask-the-Master Gardener answer booths and at Farmers Markets. I strongly recommend that if at all possible you try to attend the turf grass training at our Westchester Extension office.

The address of our Westchester Office is 2205 Enterprise Drive, Westchester, Illinois.
