We currently participate at the St. Charles Farmer’s Market by the Foundry in Old Town St Charles
on the first and third Saturdays of the month during summer. Our booth runs from 8 –12 on those Saturday mornings. One purpose is to provide information on the Master Gardener program and on the many programs offered by the St Charles County Extension Office.
Another purpose is to provide research based information. There is literature on many different topics to hand out: Japanese beetles, fireblight, vegetable growing, lawn problems, pine tree problems to name a few. We also answer questions that the public may have and offer to get back with them if we don’t have an immediate answer. Those questions are referred to the Hortline volunteers who research the answers and get back to them in a timely manner.
If you would like to volunteer or have questions, contact Patti Kolek at firstname.lastname@example.org.
