Lecture:  This class will be an in-depth look at the alternatives to using pesticides. We will examine the insects you will see in your garden and ask the question “To spray or not to spray?’’ Sometimes you cause more harm by spraying. Find out how to grow more veggies and care for your ornamental plants with beneficial insects, bio-rational pesticides, and good cultural management.
