Gardening with nature requires knowledge of the various pathogenic fungi, bacteria, and viruses that affect native plants and the environmental conditions that lead to infection. Become your own plant health detective and learn the signs and symptoms of the most common plant diseases. Study disease life cycles and discuss management strategies for prevention and control, then implement them in your garden.
These classes are held rain or shine. Dress for the weather and wear reliable shoes as walking paths may be uneven.
