Event Description

Come to MSU North Farm for four afternoon-long learning sessions with an emphasis on hands-on activities so you can practice what you learn in class with other farmers and gardeners. Insects are important players on the farm – though often thought of as pests and parasites, insects are active in soil health, as pollinators, and even as pest control. Understanding insects in the context of your whole farm ecosystem will help you make informed decisions. Learn best practices from MSU educators on integrated pest management (IPM), native pollinators, and bees.
