Title: Insects in the Garden Talk and Walk

Presenter: Pam Ruch

Description: This is not about “good” and “bad” bugs. It’s about taking a close look at your garden and all the fascinating creatures living in it. Predator and prey insects will usually come to a balance, if you let them. Plant a variety of flowers and vegetables and get to know your insects, and you’ll rarely need to spray.

Special Time: 6:00 – 8:00 Talk – 6-7 stay for a garden walk to look for insects to follow 7-8

Location: Temple Ambler Bright Hall Lounge
