Virtual Foundation Meeting: Integrated Pest Management (IPM)

Thurs, June 25
6:30pm – Membership Meeting
7pm – Speaker: Rod Baker, WSU Master Gardener

IPM is one of our core principles as Master Gardeners. Rod will cover what IPM is and the important steps in following its guidelines. There are times when the use of pesticides may be indicated or the Master Gardener is asked about their use. Reading those pesticide labels can be confusing as they are not easy to decipher and interpret. This presentation will help to take some of the mystery and angst about discussing pesticide use with clients.

Bio: Rod Baker has a degree from Michigan State University in Landscape Horticulture. He worked for Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA) for 27 years. The majority of his time at WSDA was spent in the Pesticide Management Division. He retired in 2016 and has been a Thurston County, WSU Certified Master Gardener since 2017.

This meeting will be via ZOOM. You will need a meeting link to participate.
