The Purdue Master Gardener Program is an integral part of the Purdue University Cooperative Extension Service and provides the citizens of Indiana a chance to grow.
Many gardeners may already have completed some early soil preparation and even limited planting, have already prepped and testing out of lawn and garden equipment and possibly even accomplished some weed control or fertilization-whatever could be accomplished with the wet cool soils and air temps struggling into the sixties.
April 22, 2015 is the 45th anniversary of Earth Day. Many of us might even remember the excitement of that first Earth Day all the way back in the spring of 1970!
This past week I had the opportunity to be a part of the discussion about the development of an Indiana Pollinator Protection program at the Beck Center at the Purdue Agronomy farm in West Lafayette.
