“Our educational field trips were something new we tried this year,” says Keokuk County Extension Director Katharinna Bain. “These tours and visits made learning a lot more fun and were very engaging! I greatly appreciate the families and businesses that worked with us to make these field trips possible.” Some of the topics included in the training were Vegetables and Herbs, Weed Science, Entomology, Houseplants, Composting, Landscaping, Turfgrass, and Pest Management.
