As Fall approaches, the Gardening Department at the U of I Extension is still working hard to help people with their gardens and planting. They have two webinars during the month of August that people can sign up for and take virtual classes and have the option to either take the class and ask questions, or they can watch the YouTube videos later on. Gwen Podeschi, Master Gardener at the U of I Extension said the first webinar, “Keep it Going, Keep it Growing,” begins tomorrow.

Podeschi also said there's one later on in the month called “Illinois Native Pollinators.”
