Learn about Earth-Kind® landscaping practices that help protect the environment, conserve water and more during free webinar
Spring is a perfect time to reevaluate your garden and landscape to make improvements. Join University of Illinois Extension and the Decatur Rose Society for a live webinar featuring Randy Nelson, Clay County Horticulture Educator at University of Minnesota Extension. Randy has worked with Earth-Kind® Environmental Landscape Management System since 2008 and the America Rose Trials for Sustainability since 2015. He will discuss Earth-Kind® and other adaptive plants. He will also discuss how proper plant selection can reduce water and pesticide usage.

By taking a systematic approach to landscaping, you can help to conserve and protect natural resources while maintaining the functionality and quality of your landscape. Earth-Kind® landscaping is a system developed by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service that combines organic and conventional landscaping practices with a focus on environmental responsibility. The goal of Earth-Kind® is to encourage water conservation, reduce fertilizer and pesticide use, conserve energy and recycle landscaping waste.

This live webinar is 7-8pm April 16, 2018 at the Macon County Extension Office located at 3351 N. President Howard Brown Blvd. in Decatur. This webinar is free, however registration is required by April 15 by visiting or calling 217.877.6042. For questions or additional information, please contact Beth at 217.762.2191 or
