Pests in the Garden

Saturday, October 3, 2020, 9:30am - 10:30am

As if weeds and weird weather weren’t bad enough, gardeners also have to face garden pests. How do we keep pests from ruining all our hard work in the garden? Instructor Joan Morris will talk about the most annoying pests we find in our gardens, from tomato-stealing squirrels to hungry snails and slugs, and discuss ways to keep them out of our space. She welcomes questions, but would prefer that they be sent to her in advance at [email protected] to assist in determining specific areas of interest. Questions also may be sent during her presentation through Zoom chat. Questions will be answered as time permits.

This class will be conducted via Zoom. Join from a PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone or Android device. Please download Zoom and create a free Zoom account ahead of time. Then sign in for the class with a Zoom link that Gamble Garden will provide no later than 24 hours prior to the class.
