Radio waves: Froning on our weird spring, master gardeners & coming master options

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Holly Froning talks master gardening, our weird spring and coming attractions this afternoon on "Outside."


Froning is the master gardener coordinator for Kankakee County. She explains what master gardener means, what are the basic requirements and ongoing requirements.

We dabble a bit in the impact of this weird spring--the historic heat of March to the cold dryness of April.

Froning also talks about such coming attractions as master naturalist, which I believe Norm Minas told me I should take the last time it was offered, and master composter. As a dedicated composter of more than 12 years, I should probably take that one, too.

"Outside" airs from 4:30-5 p.m. Mondays on WKCC-FM (91.1) in Kankakee. Rebroadcasts of the show are at 12:30 p.m. on Sundays. On a programming note: Because of the fundraising show next week, the rebroadcast of this show will be at 12:30 p.m. Sunday, May 27, not next Sunday.

Laurel Soper, the web tech and digital media person for KCC, has put together the podcast system here.
