February 2020 Meeting Announcement

We hope you will join
The Garden Club of Weaverville
for Our February Meeting

Program: Integrated Pest Management in the Home Garden 

Tuesday, February 11 at 9:30 am

In the Weaverville Town Hall Community Room
[30 South Main Street]

Alison Arnold, an NC State Agricultural Extension Agent, will discuss and lead a conversation about how you can apply Integrated Pest Management principles to your home garden.

“Quick fixes,” such as chemical controls (both organic and conventional) for pest management, do not always provide a long term solution and can also impact beneficial insects and other non-targeted organisms.  It’s time gardeners begin to make pest management choices utilizing a strategy of methods that provide long term environmentally supportive results.

Alison is responsible for all consumer horticulture topics in Buncombe County including the Buncombe Master Gardener program.
