March 21 is Gardener’s Day
This year’s Calhoun, Cass, Greene, Morgan and Scott County Gardener’s Day will be on March 21. Gardener’s Day will take place at the Morgan County Extension Office in Jacksonville (104 N. Westgate Ave.) and will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. There will be a morning (9 a.m. to noon) and afternoon (1 p.m. to 3 p.m.) session.
During the morning session there will be three presentations. The first presentation is titled Cover Crops for the Home Gardener. If you are looking for ways to improve your garden soil, you may want to consider the use of cover crops. Duane Friend (University of Illinois Extension Energy and Environmental Stewardship Educator) will discuss the use of cover crops in gardens and their benefits.
