Throughout the week, Master Gardeners will be manning a booth in Ag Hall to help you answer your gardening questions.  During the 2021 Elkhart County Fair, more than 200 people were helped with questions ranging from sick looking plants to when to fertilize lawns.  Feel free to bring samples of any sick plants or insects you want to identify to their booth at the fair. 

Master Gardeners is a volunteer training program offered by Purdue Extension.  Master Gardeners receive training on many horticulture subjects, and then give volunteer educational time back to the community.  Purdue Extension - Elkhart County will be offering a Master Gardener training this fall.
