       Gardener’s Corner is a quarterly print newsletter written, edited and published by University of Illinois Extension.  The purpose of the newsletter is to provide timely, relevant statewide home gardening information to interested clientele.  Horticulture educators across the state contribute articles on a rotating basis.  Articles are reviewed by fellow educators or campus specialist for content and information technology staff  provide design and editing service for the newsletter. The newsletter is professionally printed in full color, including photos to support each article.  The Gardener’s Corner newsletter was relaunched on a larger state-wide basis with volume 11, issue 1 in August 2015.  The fall 2015 issue included six articles with 20,200 copies distributed state-wide including more than 500 copies handout out by educators at the University of Illinois Extension booth at the Illinois State Fair.  The winter 2015 issue included seven articles with 16,700 copies distributed state-wide.   The spring 2016 issue included seven articles, with 20,200 copies distributed state-wide. Each Extension Unit is provided 100 copies of the newsletter and has the option to order additional copies from a designated campus coordinator. County offices share the newsletter with clientele by direct mail or distribute at garden programs.
