The Scoop on Poop and More
Tuesday, May 7, 2019 • 6:50pm
Griffith Park Building, Beaverton, OR


Presenter: Ross Penhallegon, Assoc Professor Emeritus OSU Dept. of Horticulture. There seems to be a very large discussion about the good and bad of organic and/or conventional gardening/agriculture. This talk will look at how we currently grow food in our gardens; what we do; what we think are good gardening techniques; AMAZING myths; and really look at what fertilizers we use or the “scoop on poop”; how we control insects – or not: and the differences between these techniques or non- differences. This is not a good verse bad, this is to better understand the choices we make. Location: City of Beaverton, Griffith Park Building, Room 330, 4755 SW Griffith DR, Beaverton, OR 97014 (sponsored by Washington County Master Gardeners Assn. No registration needed, free parking). *Class is approved for one-hour MG Education Credit.
