Outsmart Pests After Attending White Oak Pastures’ Organic Pest Management Workshop May 30
Oh, bother. Seems those nasty pests love lazy summer days as much as you do. Learn the basics of integrated pest management at White Oak Pastures’ Organic Pest Management Workshop on Saturday, May 30. Identify nasty garden pests, discover how to prevent the voracious villains from establishing residency in your small veggie garden or larger farm, review commercial and homemade solutions and see how beneficial insects fit into the mix. Already bugged by pests? Bring insect damage examples from your home garden for identification and eradication suggestions. A farm tour opens the day at 10 a.m., and the workshop wraps up around 4:30 p.m. with lunch in the Pavilion filling the noon hour. Class size limited to 20 participants. $65 per person, includes lunch. Reserve a spot online or call 229-641-2081.
