  I am happy to say that the Lane County Extension Service is alive and well in our local community!  After their loss of funding during a recent election, I was very concerned that we were going to lose a tremendous resource to our community.  The folks at the extension service have moved mountains to continue to provide fantastic services to our local community including:

   The Master Gardener Program and associated hotline provides not only sustainable landscaping training, but hotline & walk-in services to help you identify pests & invasive plants, provide garden advice and training in composting & pruning

~ Hotline hours & walk-in service provided Telephone

      from 10-1 & 2-5 Monday-Thursday

    The extension office is located at

              783 Grant Street in Eugene, Oregon
