Learn as your schedule allows. No high speed internet connection is required. This program has been reformatted due to the current health crisis. This will be an easy-to-use program with participants receiving by mail a flash drive with all of the recordings and information that would have been originally offered on March 31, April 7 & April 14. There will be no live sites or live remote viewing at this time. Total teaching time is about 6 hours.

If you have questions on the content of the instruction, or just need direction on growing your own vegetables during the season, contact our Purdue Extension-Marion County Master Gardener AnswerLine. Our Master Gardener volunteers are checking their phone voice mail and e-mail now from home. To contact the AnswerLine, call 317-275-9292 (leave a message) or e-mail:
