Since the 1st Saturday of July is during the 4th of July weekend we will be having our next webinar on July 10, 2021 at 10 am. Special guest Bob Gillespie, a newly retired faculty member and Program Director for the Agriculture and Natural Resources Programs at Wenatchee Valley College who taught courses in Integrated Pest Management, Field based IPM, Entomology, Plant Science, and Sustainable Agriculture in the Ag Program will be teaching about pollinators and other topics within his field of expertise.
Bob will be helping us at NW Fruit explore ways that we can create habitat in or near the Fruit Garden for pollinators and beneficial insects, spiders, and mites which can help reduce pest levels.
Our members will receive an email with the direct link for the webinar. Non-members can get the link by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org and and asking for the link.
In August we will begin a monthly ZOOM members meeting with an educational talk and question and answer period. This will be a meeting format, rather than a webinar format.
