Garden Talk: How I Learned to Love (Some) Garden Bugs

July 15, 2017 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

We’re happy to partner with the Clarke County Library to present a Free Garden Talks Series – Sustainability in the Garden – at Barns of Rose Hill in 2017. All presenters are members of the Northern Shenandoah Master Gardener Association.

Swat, Spray, Squash – or Smile? – How I Learned to Love (Some) Garden Bugs
Speaker: Pat Casey
Saturday, July 15 at 2:00 PM – Free Admission

The seminar will strive to persuade participants that no matter how disgusting and annoying and downright ugly they may consider bugs, they are only partly right.  Yes, insects in the garden can be aggravating and destructive – but there are coping mechanisms available to wily gardeners. And some of those bugs are actually a gardener’s good friends and allies.   Come and find out the whys and hows of the love-hate relationship between gardeners and the tiny creatures that bug them.

About Pat Casey:
Pat Casey is an enthusiastic – if not yet expert – Shenandoah Valley gardener.  She finds gardening both rewarding and constantly challenging, with no end of new information to learn and new skills to practice.  She and her husband are enjoying their retirement in Middletown, Virginia, having escaped their Washington, DC work life. In addition to gardening, Pat appreciates traveling, cooking, reading, and bridge. She is also a dyed-in-the-wool baseball fan (Go Nats).
