August 23 – Will Jaquinde—Home Gardening Success Using Farming Techniques -
When we are solving problems in our home gardens, it would help to get some pointers from the professionals. Enter Will Jaquinde, Sustainable Agriculture Instructor and CSA Coordinator of MSU Tollgate Farm. He will be sharing tools and tricks from sustainable farming that can be applied to make home gardens more efficient, pest-resistant, and healthy. These include tips on pest control, using mulch, row covers, cover cropping and more to make your home gardens more successful. Weather permitting, we will also see these methods in action at the CSA Farm onsite. http://tollgate.msu.edu/csa
