The University of Illinois Extension, Lake County and SWALCO (Solid Waste Agency of Lake County) are happy to present the 2021 Garden Learning Series No 3. Programs will be held on the second Wednesday of the month, 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. The third in the series will be held on April 14 (virtually) and will feature tips on growing vegetable plants.
These workshops are offered through a collaboration between SWALCO and University of Illinois Extension as part of a grant from USDA, focusing on local efforts to promote composting and food waste diversion. The grant also hopes to increase the generation and use of compost in commercial, residential, agriculture, and community gardens sectors in Lake County, Illinois. Community Gardens wanting to learn more or get involved, can reach out. * Please check back to see which programs will be offered virtually or which may be offered live.
