Horticulture Day: A Homegrown Lifestyle
Can you picture your back yard as a small farm--with herbs, flowers and vegetables growing in place of the Kentucky Blue Grass? It can happen, if you learn a few basics. On today's Horticulture Friday, we hear about a spring course from Iowa State University Extension, "Learn How to Have a Homegrown Lifestyle." It will be offered at 11 Iowa locations beginning March 29. It's for folks who want to reconnect with the land, grown food for their own use and create a sustainable landscape. Andy Larson of ISU Extension will tell us more about the course. Richard Jauron, ISU Extension Horticulturalist will be here as well--to answer your lawn and garden questions.
