August 13 - The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: Integrated Pest Management for the Veggie Garden - MSU Extension Sustainable Agriculture Instructor Darby Anderson 

From the beneficial Squash Bees to the pesky Potato Beetles, we interact with bugs daily as gardeners. MSU Tollgate's Sustainable Agriculture Instructor Darby Anderson will explain the principles of Integrated Pest Management approach and explore practices such as physical barriers, trapping, mulching to limit and suppress pest populations and thus damage to our crops.
