Come learn about the diversity of beneficial organisms in Michigan gardens! Emilie Cole and Holly Hooper of Michigan State University will discuss how to identify who is a friend and who is a foe in both below ground and above ground systems, which will be followed by a guided insect safari at Tollgate Farm and Education Center. This hands-on workshop will focus on natural enemies commonly found in the garden, and how you can best support them through habitat enhancement. Participants will learn how to construct monitoring traps so they are able to sample for these beneficial organisms at home.
