University of Illinois Extension Master Gardeners are volunteers who put their green thumbs to good use by training with Extension horticulture experts and then sharing their knowledge in the community. Together we are constantly learning and that's what makes it fun!

Training emphasizes practical research-based information and includes virtual lectures, discussions, activities and online videos. Training topics include: Botany, Plant Pathology, Annuals and Perennials, Soils, Insects, Woody Ornamentals, Vegetables, Turf, Fruits, IMP and Living with Wildlife. 

The November 10 class subject is Vegetables and the guest speaker is Grant McCarty, horticulture educator.
