Serving Boone, DeKalb and Ogle Counties

If you enjoy gardening and like to learn to share your gardening knowledge, the Master Gardener program may be for you. All you need is an interest in gardening, an open mind, and a willingness to share your knowledge with others. The task to the Master Gardeners is to share unbiased, reliable, research-based information with home landscapers and gardeners. Another important function is to encourage young people to enjoy the pleasures of flower and vegetable growing.

There are many places you can find information about gardening tips, trends, and techniques. These resources are a few topics of interest to our local gardeners.
