I hope everyone has seen the group email from Pat about the online sign up site for the Extension Helpline. Pat and JERRY have worked it and JERRY said it was easier then the old set up. Ruby Moberg has signed up several times, she is experienced at it, so if you would like, you can go in and sign up with her. Or any others that are comfortable with a computer should be fine with it. The link is posted below, so click on it, then look at it and your calendar, and pick a day for you. Extension is now doing it 1 full week a month, up till Nov., instead of every Thursday all summer. It’s a great way to earn hours! Please help! The button below will take you to the sign up site.
Bright rain boots filled with spring flowers welcomed us to our April Chilton County Master Gardener meeting, thanks to Hospitality leader, Lyn Webb.
Congratulations to Intern Joan Crocker, who was awarded her Master Gardener badge and certificate.
Mollie Smith, Auburn School of Fisheries manager, presented a program on Aquaponics. She described the system used at AU and also showed how a smaller scale home version could be set up. Fish are grown in tanks and the water is used to water and fertilize plants. The fish, usually Tilapia, are also harvested. AU has had great success growing vine crops with their system.
