University of Illinois Extension is partnering with the Regional Office of Education 33 for this in person, hands-on container gardening workshop.

Containers are a great way to spruce up an entryway with flowers or grow tasty vegetables and herbs. Yet, growing in a container is very different than growing in the ground. Come join University of Illinois Extension horticulture educator, Martha Smith, to discuss container gardening tips and techniques. We will learn about soil, maintenance, and growing edible and decorative plants. Plus, participants will get to do a hands-on activity to plant their very own container to take home.
