C-U Garden Walk set for June 22

The University of Illinois Extension Champaign County Master Gardeners will host their annual Garden Walk in Champaign and Urbana from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 22. The event will be held regardless of weather conditions.

The theme this year is Garden Oasis. The walk features eight gardens; guests will see a variety from therapeutic to educational, retreats to vistas, new to established and formal to eclectic. They can visit the Idea Garden, on the corner of Florida and Lincoln avenues in Urbana, for gardening supplies and plant vendors. The Idea Garden will host several demonstrations, and certified Master Gardeners will be available to answer questions.

All proceeds help fund Master Gardener projects in Champaign County, the Idea Garden, community garden projects, the purchase of reference books and Master Gardener scholarships. Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 on the day of the event at the Idea Garden. They are available at the UI Extension Office, 801 N. Country Fair Drive, C, and at garden centers in the area.
