Cornell Cooperative Extension offers information on soils, site improvement, plant selection, proper plant care, eco-friendly practices, integrated pest management, composting and more. They offer free or low-cost gardening classes, and opportunities to share your love of gardening as a volunteer. We have three locations you can contact with gardening questions in our region.
