As climates and other conditions change we are faced with challenges and opportunities for adaptation. Learn techniques to be more flexible and successful when dealing with new invasive insects, plants, and predators. Join Glynis Ward, Stephanie Van Parys and other local gardeners, to discuss changing zones and micro climates and learn how to introduce methods to help your garden in our changing times. Even though mean temperatures are rising, we won’t be growing palms or oranges any time soon. It’s not about average temperatures, but about extremes. We request Members and Non members to register online.
