University of Illinois Extension Offering Hands on Horticulture Classes

The University of Illinois Extension office will begin a series of hands-on horticulture classes next week and they are going to be monthly offerings for DeWitt, Piatt, and Macon Counties.
Master Gardener Candice Hart says they are starting with hydroponics, or growing plants without soil. She indicates this is becoming increasingly popular.
Hart will offer courses like these once a month and they'll cover topics from seed starting to rain barrels and many other throughout the year.
The first one is Monday, March 5 in Clinton, March 6 in Decatur and March 7 in Monticello. Cost is $25. For more information contact the DeWitt County Extension office at 217-935-5764 or register online.
