REMINDER: Upcoming Workshop - Natural Pest Control & Organic Pesticides
Natural Pest Control & Organic Pesticides
The registration deadline for this informative workshop is fast approaching (August 2nd at 5pm), and spaces are filling up quickly! Head on over to: http://wildplantpesticides.eventbrite.ca/ to get your name on the list!
Built on the research of agroecologist, Dr. Fulvio Gioanetto, this hands-on, advanced-level workshop will focus on the use of wild plants as bioindicators of soil health; the production and demonstration of agroecological, insecticidal and fungicidal sprays made from common garden weeds and minerals; organic management of garlic nematodes; and a general discussion on compost and fertility. The day will include components of classroom-style lecture and discussion, as well as hands-on creation and use of various sprays in field settings. Participants will also each receive a comprehensive, 60 page field guide that contains all the information from the workshop (and more!) to take home!
The event will be held at Wheelbarrow Farm in Sunderland, ON (http://goo.gl/maps/j4t0z) on Sunday August 11th, from 10am to 4pm. Organic lunches will be available and can be purchased from host Tony Neale for an additional $12. Please let us know if you are interested in purchasing lunch by emailing Jay Adam. Otherwise, please plan on bringing your own lunch.
We require at least 15 participants in order for the workshop to run, and we are limited to a maximum of 20 seats due to space limitations. Seats are filling up quickly, so get your tickets now! http://wildplantpesticides.eventbrite.ca/
