Gardening without Pesticides, Wednesday, April 13, 2016

Fearon Blair and Elaine Sedgman, Master Gardeners

One of the best ways to protect our pollinators is to stop using pesticides in our gardens. Fearon and Elaine will provide you with some simple and positive ecologically friendly techniques for use in your garden so that you too can help save these important creatures.  Fearon and Elaine believe that prevention is the key to a healthy garden, especially landscaping for local conditions. They discuss looking after wildlife in the soil (bacteria, fungi & microbes) as well as the wildlife above the soil (particularly predatory beneficial insects). Great pictures of gardens, pests and their natural enemies, will inspire you to look at your garden in a different way.

Fearon Blair: has a Bachelor’s degree in Nursing, a Master’s degree in Adult Education, and Master Gardener training, presented in partnership with the TRU Horticultural Department.

Elaine Sedgman: has a BA in English and Sociology from the University of Victoria, a BFA from Thompson Rivers University, and Master Gardener training in conjunction with TRU.
