Class: Family Workshop: Attracting Good Bugs to Your Garden

Format: Lecture & Hands-on Workshop

Instructor: Suzanne Bontempo

Did you know that 90% of the bugs in our gardens are actually good bugs eating bad bugs? Let's learn about these most wanted allies and how to invite them to stay. Suzanne Bontempo, a 20+ year horticulture specialist, will discuss how to identify the bugs in your garden, how to keep the good ones around, and which plants are good bug magnets. Courtesy of Mid-Peninsula Water District, a complimentary group activity will be provided at the end of the lecture to take home and enjoy. This is a fun program for the whole family.
