Every few weeks, at First Light, University of Illinois Extension educator Richard Hentschel and First Light host Brian O'Keefe take some time to talk about agriculture, agri-businesses, your home landscape, and backyard garden. This week for the ‘Farm to Table’ segment Richard and Brian visited Doty Nursery in Elburn. The family farm grows a large variety trees. With so many ash trees being removed from the region, the nursery is working to keep up with demand.
