The University of Illinois Extension Master Gardeners invite the public to visit their Idea Garden. Eight different garden beds are designed to show homeowner garden techniques that can be easily replicated in their own yards.
New this year is a vertical garden created out of recycled wooden pallets and a compost bin created with straw bales.
The Idea Garden will be open to the public on Tuesday, July 9 from 9 to 11 a.m. and 5 to 7 p.m. The garden is located directly behind the Master Gardener vegetable stand at the corner of Peck Road and Route 38, St. Charles. Enter via the Route 38 driveway.
For information, call Sarah Fellerer at the U of I Extension office at (630) 584-6166.
