Suzanne Bontempo from Our Water Our World Presents:
How to Protect Your Garden Against Drought and Pests
Monday, July 26 from 10 am to 11:30 am
Here in California, droughts are part of our natural weather cycles. Droughts can increase the number of pests in our gardens. We welcome Suzanne Bontempo from OWOW (Our Water Our World) to speak about Summer Gardening Pest Management. She will tell us ways to help protect our plants from pests during extensive drought conditions.
When drought conditions persist for long periods of time, it can harm plants in a number of ways. Lack of water limits a plant’s ability to produce food, and stressed plants can release chemicals that can attract pests. Excessive heat can accelerate the reproduction time of pests. Learn ways to protect your plants in this presentation.
Suzanne Bontempo works as an environmental educator, teaching the principles of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) for sustainable, eco-friendly pest management around the home and garden. Suzanne, owner of Plant Harmony and program manager for Our Water Our World was recognized for excellence in her field, winning the 2013 IPM Innovators Award.
