Website and/or Calendar Links
The University of Illinois Extension Vermilion County Garden Day Workshop and Spring Festival is right around the corner, filled to the brim with everything plant lovers enjoy: phenomenal speakers, vendors, a delicious hot lunch, a silent auction, raffle baskets and door prizes. It is a great way to shake off the winter doldrums and get inspiration for this year’s garden.
Speakers and topics of this year’s event will include Amanda Krabbe (Designing a Downsized Garden), Mary Ann Metz (Hydrangeas 101), JoEllen Sharp (Deer Can Cost You a Lot of Doe) and Ryan Pankau (Invasives—What Every Gardener Should Know). Breaks will occur for lunch, prepared by DACC Culinary Arts School and for time to shop the gardening vendors and participate in the silent auction. Master Gardeners who attend will receive four continuing education hours.
For those who cannot commit to a whole day, the Spring Festival is open to the public from 8 AM - 4 PM at no charge. All are welcome to come peruse garden-themed vendors and the silent auction items.
University of Illinois Extension provides equal opportunities in programs and employment. If you need a reasonable accommodation to participate, please call the Extension Office.
