Sheridan Street Community Support
A few executive members of our garden club had the fantastic opportunity to learn about pests, plant diseases and how to manage them from local expert/hero and State Master Gardener Coordinator Jon Traunfeld via a lecture held at Sheridan Street Community Garden earlier this week. Thanks to their expertise, we feel like we are (organically) winning the battle against the squash bugs who recently infiltrated our patches. Special thanks to our friend Christie Balch, the University of Maryland Extension Program Coordinator at the Center for Educational Partnership, for keeping us in the loop.
