Still Time to Test Soil
There is still time this fall to do a soil test for your lawn or garden. Many home owners will do a soil test to find out what nutrients are lacking in the soil, but often times the results show that we have been over fertilizing. The soil test takes the guess work out of the question and allows you to develop a practical and environmentally sound program. For details on how to collect a sample see the MU publication, Soil Testing for Lawns.
Buy a brick fundraiser
St. Charles County Extension Council sponsors an ongoing brick fundraising effort to keep our programs and services at their current level. With funding from St. Charles County government reduced by 54 percent since 2008, we are forced to find additional sources of financial support. For each $100 donation, a brick will be inscribed and added to the pathway around our flagpole. Donations are tax-deductible. Brick order form (PDF).
