OTTAWA - The fall series of the University of Illinois Extension’s Four Seasons Gardening Program, which focuses on environmental stewardship, home gardening, and backyard food production, gets underway in September. The public is invited to participate in this free webinar series.
The first session of the series is titled “Fall Gardening.” Gardening does not have to end when the calendar turns to fall. Join Ken Johnson, University of Illinois Extension horticulture educator, to learn about the crops that can be grown, as well as other garden and yard activities to do in the fall.
This program will be offered via a live webinar at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 17 at the following University of Illinois Extension Offices: LaSalle County, Ottawa; Bureau County, Princeton; and Marshall-Putnam counties. This webinar may also be viewed from wherever there is internet access by pre-registering at go.illinois.edu/4seasons_webinars. Recorded videos of these sessions can be viewed following the program at go.illinois.edu/fourseasonsrecordings.
Other topics in the fall series include “Tree Compartmentalization” on Tuesday, Oct. 8 at 1:30 p.m. and “Gardening for Birds” on Tuesday, Dec. 3 at 1:30 p.m.
Each session is free to the public. Advance registration is needed. Phone or e-mail the LaSalle County University of Illinois Extension office for more details at (815) 433-0707, or e-mail Extension Program Coordinator Meg Overocker at [email protected]
