Gardening Insights

Trays of plant clippings

Since 2007, the Macon County Master Gardeners have hosted Gardening Insights, a fun day of horticulture classes for Central Illinois gardeners.

Gardening Insights offers inspiring programs and speakers that send you to the garden with new ideas and the tools you need for spring planting. Participants can choose from from multiple class options that both beginning and expert gardeners will enjoy.

  • Network with area gardeners 
  • Learn from industry experts 
  • Attend 3 sessions of your choice and a keynote speaker
  • Enjoy a variety of topics covering current trends
  • Shop garden novelties 
  • Visit the Ask a Master Gardener help desk 

New for 2023, there will be a youth area! Adult attendees are welcome to bring youth for craft, STEM, cooking, and gardening activities. Plus a DIY pizza party! Lead by 4-H in a separate area. Please include children on the registration form of their guardian. Limited number of spots available!
