Kendall County Master Gardener hosting microgreens workshop July 6


Bring gardening indoors with microgreens and learn to grow your own nutritious food right in your kitchen. Join University of Illinois Extension for a family-friendly workshop, where participants will learn seed selection, planting, tending and harvesting from Master Gardener Rachel Trumbore.

The workshop will begin at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 6, at the Kendall County Extension office, 7775B Route 47, Yorkville. Registration is required and space may be limited. Cost is $40 per adult and $15 for each youth participant, ages 4 to 13. To learn more or sign up, visit

Microgreens are tasty, packed with nutrients and easy to grow at home. Growing them is a great activity for individuals or families. Each adult and youth participants will choose what they want to grow – radish, broccoli, sunflower or peas – which will be planted in class and ready to take home to continue growing and enjoying.

For questions or if you need a reasonable accommodation to participate in this program, contact Sarah Fellerer at or call the Extension office at 630-553-5823. Early requests are encouraged to allow sufficient time for meeting your access needs.
