The Montgomery County Master Gardeners have announced the cancellation of the 130th Farmer’s Institute set for Friday, Sept. 11 and Saturday, Sept. 12, due to the pandemic.

“The impact of the COVID-19 continues to create uncertainty and concern both globally and here in the community,” said a spokesperson for the Extension office. “Following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, campus leadership has implemented social distancing protocols that impact all university events. Illinois Extension, as the outreach program of the university, aligns with all policies related to public health and safety.”
