Hello folks-We haven’t forgotten you! In fact we are very busy planning all the classes/events for 2018 so please bear with us. There is a lot to do when planning the whole year out-class subjects, locations, teachers, etc all have to be coordinated and once that is done, we will release the schedule. So for all those waiting to see what we will put on this year, please be patience-we’re pedaling as fast as we can! We will put the schedule out mid-February on this site for all to see. We have a fabulous year planned for HGNM!! Meanwhile anyone who signed up late last year, don’t worry, you will receive your membership card before anything happens!

Today I taught the Organic Pesticide class and added Disease Control too as we are or will be dealing with pests and disease soon in the middle of the gardening season. The class was great and we had good comments from some of the attendees. I talked about what’s going on the our gardens now and what insect and disease controls we can implement. Attached is the pdf from the class for anyone who wants to know what I do.
ORGANIC PEST and DISEASE CONTROLS
Also attached is the pdf with photos of certain insects that may be attacking our plants now as well. This is in color so it would be a great reference for you to keep when you need to identify a bug you may think is a pest.
CLass pests pics
I recommended the book, Good Bug, Bad Bug for everyone to get which is a great ID book that will show which ones are good beneficial bugs and which ones we consider pests and what crops they attack. I got mine at Amazon.
Then we walked around the community garden and looked for plants that are being attacked or are sick and I showed everyone the plants so hopefully it will help them go back to their gardens and look at their plants and see what is going on.
Other than the heat, I thought the class was great. Thanks to all 20 of you that attended!
