Plant Health Workshop

September 7 | 10:00 am 3:00 pm

In a world of global trade and changing climate there are more frequent new threats to plant health, and early detection is the key to successful management. Participating in this workshop will help you to recognize signs of these pests and diseases in your own community and to know how to react. It will also open the door interested volunteers to monitor plant health here at the Naval Cemetery Landscape (NCL) and other gardens and greenspace and in street trees along the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway!
We are teaming up with the Sentinel Plant Network of the American Public Gardens Association and the USDA to provide this educational opportunity. The workshop will cover plant health monitoring efforts, advantages of early detection, and typical signs and symptoms for insect pests, fungi, and viruses. The workshop will also share details about emerging regional threats and the best way to report your observations. Attendees will walk through the NCL and see examples of specific plant health issues.

If you’re looking to broaden your horticultural training and help protect plants around you, then this workshop is for you! This is a free workshop but registration is required so register here to reserve your spot!
