STERLING, Ill.-Join Whiteside County Master Gardeners and discover the joy of plants. The Saturday with a Master Gardener series will start with the February 11, 2023 program; “I Drank WHAT?” Pick your poison, and get to know the more infamous plants and their toxins.

Plants are a beautiful addition to your home, whether they’re placed indoors or outside. While you may enjoy sprucing up your space with greenery, some are too dangerous to keep around. Know which plants are dangerous and protect your family, pets, and animals.
