Safe Use of Pesticides & Alternatives (MGCC)

Thursday Evening

We believe that all gardeners should avoid using pesticides whenever possible, regardless if they are organic or synthetic in origin. However, as a Master Gardener, you still need to understand how to use all pesticides intelligently to minimize harm to you and the environment. This half-day course covers pesticide formulations, toxicity, persistence, and labeling and safety practices. Prevention is always the best defense so alternatives to pesticide use are briefly discussed.

NOTE: It is recommended to have taken Garden Fundamentals prior to taking this course.

MGCC denotes Master Gardener Core Course.
