Entomologist Gary Fish teaches how to attract and protect beneficial organisms in the home garden on Tuesday, March 26 at 12:00 pm.
Beneficial organisms are all around us, we only need to understand and recognize them to take advantage of their assistance. In this presentation, Gary Fish will show how to grow gardens that attract beneficial organisms (parasites, predators and pollinators) and how to protect them so they can provide the highest level of ecosystem services.
A photographer and lifelong lover of insects and plants, Fish has been a Maine State Horticulturist for over two years. He served as Manager of Pesticide Programs for the Board Pesticide control for over 28 years and has served as a licensed professional forester since 1985.
