Master Gardeners,

  • Thank you for your patience as we assess and implement changes affecting ISU Johnson County Extension and its programs given the increase in advisories issued in response to the spread of COVID-19. Effective (3/19/2020) the Johnson County Extension Office is closed to the public until further notice. Staff members are still working during this time but will be working remotely. We will have one staff member in the office daily, to check mail and voicemails, and keep up with essential operations. The best way to reach me is via email bielicke@iastate.edu or my personal cell phone. 

  • Other JCMG activities: No more than 10 people should be gathered and social distancing is very important. Meetings and activities should be suspended and alternate ways of working and planning should implemented. Utilize phone, email, and other forms of virtual resources to stay in touch and plan. If you have questions about an activity or need help with connecting at a distance please let me know and I will do my best to help.

  • Please also visit our Johnson County webpage www.extension.iastate.edu/johnson/ and the JCMG Member’s Only webpage www.extension.iastate.edu/johnson/content/johnson-county-master-gardener-members-only for additional information as it comes available.

  • I will be working on my end to find additional ways to connect and find resources that may be helpful. Please take this time to self-educate, grow great home gardens to provide for your families and neighbors, and stay healthy and happy. I welcome thoughts and suggestions for additional remote activities, fundraisers, and plans for the future. Put your brainstorming hats on and still please keep notes on the hours & learning you are committing to better yourself and the community to report in the online hours reporting system.

    We appreciate you being aware, assessing your individual situation, and keeping yourselves and other’s health in mind. We will do our best to make efforts to bring future opportunities as we are able. Please email me if you have any questions.
