About this event

Join us for a timely presentation to get prepared for a bountiful gardening season.

We'll learn about current and emerging pests and plant diseases in the garden and landscape that can impact the home gardener. We will also discuss the best approach to management using integrated pest management (IPM), a system of strategies involving the use of cultural, physical and mechanical controls with chemical pesticides only being used as a last resort.

Ann Hazelrigg, PhD, is the Director for the Plant Diagnostic Clinic at the University of Vermont. Other responsibilities include the VT IPM Program, the VT Pesticide Education and Safety Program and the UVM Extension Master Gardener Program. Ann also has research programs addressing disease issues important in Vermont and New England crops. Ann received her undergraduate Horticulture degree from Colorado State University, a Master’s Degree in Pomology and Plant Pathology from Cornell University and a Ph.D. in Plant and Soil Science at University of Vermont.

The program is sponsored by the Windham & Windsor Chapters of the UVM Extension Master Gardener program. It is free for UVM Master Gardeners, Alumni, Interns, and Students. A donation of your choice is gladly accepted from the general public.

To make a disability-related accommodation request to participate, please call or email Cindy Heath, 603-543-1307, cindy.heath@uvm.edu by April 30.
