Saturday August 19th, 12 to 1:30 pm
Integrated Pest Management or ‘I.P.M’ is an ecosystem based method for controlling pest insects and other problem animals, reducing infestation and damage caused by infestation via careful scrutiny of plants and the garden environment followed by application of methodology which emphasizes environmentally benign solutions over application of disruptive and powerful chemicals. Join Ploughshare’s General Manager Jeff Bridge for a discussion of how I.P.M. works and how to incorporate it into your gardening acumen to avoid pests running amok and reduce health and monetary costs associated with over use of garden chemicals.
