The gardens, lawns and landscapes of our communities not only provide economic value, but are essential for the health that nurturing them gives back to us and our environment. During this crisis, MU Extension is dedicated to continuing its service through the safety directives of social distancing and stay at home orders.

To bridge the distance divide of our regular in-person activities such as site visits, plant diagnostic lab submissions, seminars, field days and demonstrations, a Home Horticulture "Town Hall" meeting using the Zoom remote conferencing platform will be held on Wednesdays from 11 am–noon. Starting on April 8, MU regional and state specialists will present the most current information, while more importantly conducting a Question & Answer session regarding seeding and growing practices, fertility & pest management, and operating safely in this COVID-19 environment.

Register for the weekly conference at https://ipm.missouri.edu/TownHalls, by providing your name, county, email address, and question (optional). You will be emailed directions on how to attend, either through a url linking to the Zoom platform, or with a call-in phone number. Questions should be submitted beforehand either during registration or in an email sent to the regional extension specialist/county office, or while in the meeting via the Zoom chat interface. While grounded to the basement or wherever our home office may be, we hope to still provide you with the resources to keep your plants healthy and happy during these difficult times.
