Many of us want to grow organic food and fruit, but we’re faced with the challenge of keeping unwanted insects and diseases at bay. Learn about the different kinds of pests that typically affect fruit trees in the Pacific Northwest, and the best ways to control them without using harmful chemicals. The material covered will focus on apple trees, but will include other kinds of fruit as well.
This workshop will be taught by Kent Mullinix, Director of Sustainable Agriculture and Food Security at Kwantlen University’s Institute for Sustainable Horticulture. Depending on the weather, part of the workshop will be taught indoors, with a hands-on component at the end of the evening in Evergreen’sUrban Orchardon site. Refreshments will be provided.
RSVP here! Space is limited.
