Registration To Be a Master Gardener is Approaching

Registration to become a Master Gardener is approaching, and the current Master Gardeners are hoping to bring aboard at least a half dozen new people to the group. To become a Master Gardener through the University of Illinois Extension, someone must take a 12 week course to expand their basic knowledge of the different types of plants in the area. Linda Smith, a Master Gardener at the Extension Office, said the program isn't daunting, and it helps people get more acquainted with the area and plants themselves.

Smith said one of the main benefits of being a Master Gardener includes knowing and networking with other Master Gardeners, and growing your knowledge of gardening further.

Smith appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
