JoDaviess County Master Gardeners
If you enjoy gardening and like to learn to share your gardening knowledge, the Master Gardener program may be for you. All you need is an interest in gardening, an open mind, and a willingness to share your knowledge with others. The task to the Master Gardeners is to share unbiased, reliable, research-based information with home landscapers and gardeners. Another important function is to encourage young people to enjoy the pleasures of flower and vegetable growing.
The University of Illinois Extension Jo Daviess County Master Gardeners are ready to help you with your home horticulture and gardening questions. Master Gardeners will be in the office on Mondays from 10:00 - Noon from May through September. Master gardeners provide timely, research based answers to homeowner's questions.
