NEXT MONTHLY MEETING:
June 12, 2018 4:30-6:30
Dan Gilrein, Cornell Cooperative Extension Entomologist will be our speaker. He will give a 30 min presentation titled “Insects Around Us: Hot Topics in the Garden, Farm, and Forest" will include new pests, invasive species, new technology in pest management, and some of the work done at LI Horticulture Research & Extension Center on Sound Avenue in Riverhead. We will also tour LIHREC.
To commemorate all that KK Haspel did for school gardens, we are asking schools that are part of the Edible School Garden Group to choose a workday during the month of May and post pictures on the Edible School Garden website.
