Program Description

Event Details

Join us to learn how to scout your garden to find and manage common pest and disease issues. The hands-on part of the workshop involves different stations with various plant and insect samples so you can learn how to identify some common issues. The examples that we have include diseases/pests that affect various trees or shrubs.
