Although we have been dealing with snow and ice, the University of Illinois Extension Garden Day Workshop and Spring Festival is just around the corner. U. of I. Extension of Vermilion County will be hosting the program on Saturday, March 9th from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. at Danville Area Community College.
The event includes speakers, vendors, a hot lunch, silent auction, raffle baskets and door prizes. Those who wish to listen to the speakers and enjoy lunch prepared by the Danville Area Community College Culinary Arts School can register for $25 each. Your payment reserves your seat for the event which has sold-out in past years.
For those who cannot commit to the full day, the Spring Festival is open to the public from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. at no charge.
To register or for more information, call or visit the U. of I. Extension Office at 3164 North Vermilion in Danville, or call (217) 442-8615. You can also register online at go.illinois.edu/GardenDay.
