One of the most challenging thing about growing your own fruit is knowing how to identify the insect pests and diseases that might afflict them.  Learn the basics of pest and disease identification and Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in the home orchard. Hands-on, scouting, monitoring, placement of traps, etc. will be covered.

This workshop can be combined with the Home Orchard Establishment workshop held in the morning for a reduced price.

This workshop will be partially out of doors, so please dress appropriately for potentially wet, cold, and muddy conditions.
