Trees Forever, Taylorville Park District, and the University of Illinois Christian County Extension will be hosting a two class series workshop on April 19 and 26 from 6-9 p.m. at the Christian County Extension Auditorium. There is no cost to the class, but free will donations for meals are encouraged. Barb Grabner-Kerns, Field Coordinator for Trees Forever told Regional Radio News, the classes are geared towards edible landscape of growing and caring for fruit and nut trees.

Grabner-Kerns added that plantings at Manners Park will follow the classes starting in May or June and possibly into the fall, as the goal is to make the fruit and nut trees available at the park and in your backyard.

Volunteers are asked to register at TreesForever.org/Edible-Landscapes-Workshop. For more information, contact Grabner-Kerns at 561-1062 or by e-mail at bgrabner@treesforever.org.
