Garden Insects: Friends And Foes – Carefree Desert Gardens Seminar Series
February 8 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm| $5
Guest Speaker: Carol Stuttard, an adjunct professor in the Horticulture Department at Mesa Community College and instructor at Desert Botanical Garden.
In the U.S. alone, there are approximately 91,000 species of insects, and to date we have lost 40% of the world’s bug population. Insects are our benefactors, providing us with food, clothing and dyes, but some are destructive. Ms. Stuttard will introduce attendees to the fascinating world of insects, discerning which ones are garden allies and which ones are its enemies.
Seminars are held on Saturday beginning at 9:30 a.m. in the Town Council Chambers, 33 Easy St. Programs usually include a plant raffle, and a suggested donation of $5 or more is requested in order to support these programs.
