The Small Farms Webinar Series is going on at the University of Illinois Extension until the end of March. Every week has a new topic and the upcoming topics include, Cut Flower Production and Pruning Old Fruit Trees. Gwen Podeschi, Master Gardener at the U of I Extension, talked about the different topics, and what they can do to educate those who are interested in learning more about small farming.

Podeschi also spoke on the topic held in March about bees, why so many species are going endangered, and what effect it could have on people and agriculture.

The Extension Office will be hosting a new small farms topic every Thursday through the end of March.
