The University of Illinois Extension Master Gardeners recently partnered up with the Illinois State Historical Society to put on a program centered around heirloom seeds. The Master Gardeners say they would like to put on more programs in the future, and are open to suggestion of what residents in Central Illinois would like to learn more about.
Master Gardeners Gwen Podeschi along with Jim Daughtery both appeared as guests on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show. Podeschi says the heirloom seed program had a great turnout.
Podeschi and Daughtery both say the Master Gardeners at the Extension are open to suggestions from the community as to what subjects they'd like to see future programs discuss.
If you'd like to suggest a program for the Master Gardeners, contact the Christian County Extension Office.
