Virtual Home, Lawn, & Garden Day
March 6 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm$10
This is the year of the gardener- 2021! Join fellow nature-lovers and learn all things gardening
this spring at the 19th annual Home, Lawn and Garden Day sponsored by McLean County
Master Gardeners, a program of University of Illinois Extension.
Participants will attend six live workshops on trending horticulture topics, from growing
tomatoes to designing stunning container gardens. Master Gardeners featured on the popular
WJBC Radio will host a question and answer segment—your chance to ask that gardening
question you have been pondering all winter. Researched-based solutions will be presented by
the panel, as well as fun and practical advice! In addition to the live presentations, participants
will also receive links to 10 pre-recorded sessions that will be available to you to watch at your
leisure and comfort of your home. Learn how to make a succulent wreath, get tips for designing
(or re-designing!) your landscape, be inspired to try new annual vines or groundcovers in your
garden, and more!
A $10 registration fee includes 5 live workshops, Q & A session with the Master Gardeners, and
10 pre-recorded presentations to watch in your free time. For more information and to register
online, visit go.illinois.edu/HLGD. Registration is open January 12 through March 3!
