Kirksville residents spring forward into gardening

Even with all the snow expected this weekend, that didn't stop some people from getting their spring activities underway.

The Adair County University of Missouri Extension Office held a Spring Forward Into Gardening Workshop at the Kirksville Vo-Tech School.

From Saturday morning until early afternoon, participants were able to hear sessions on flowers, herbs, weeds and raising chickens.

"Hopefully people are taking back things such as tips on growing, how to care for plants, just a wide variety of information they can take home to their farm or their backyard garden," said Jennifer Schutter of the Adair County University of Missouri Extension.

The Extension is planning to do another spring gardening workshop in Unionville next month.
