Cultivar plantas autóctonas en un clima cambiant

Atraer polinizadores y control de plagas

Las plantas autóctonas son hermosas, albergan vida silvestre, atraen polinizadores locales y son fáciles de mantener porque están adaptadas a nuestro clima. Sin embargo, ya que nuestros veranos se han vuelto más largos, nuestros días más calurosos y las lluvias de invierno más intensas, nuestras plantas necesitan un poco de cuidado amoroso y delicado (Tender Loving Care, TLC) adicional. Únase a nosotros en la discusión sobre cómo seleccionar plantas autóctonas resistentes para su jardín, así como también sobre prácticas de jardinería para ayudar a nuestras plantas a florecer. Instructor: Grace Stiller

El Control Integrado de Plagas (Integrated Pest Management, IPM) es el sistema utilizado para desarrollar jardines y paisajes saludables. Esta clase le enseñará los pasos que puede seguir para reducir los problemas de plagas sin recurrir a químicos tóxicos. Algunas prácticas simples de jardinería, nuevos productos suaves de control de plagas e identificación de insectos y enfermedades serán unos de los muchos temas que se discutirán. Aprenda cómo puede tener un jardín hermoso y saludable que sea seguro para su familia y mascotas y que a la vez sea amigable con el planeta. Instructor: Ladd Smith
