Lunch and Learn on garden insect control


Special to The Times



The Henry County Extension office will hold a lunch and learn at noon on Saturday, September 13 in room B of the Extension office. Dr. Ayanava Majumdar will be the guest speaker. Dr. Majumdar is an extension entomologist from Auburn University and is doing research on organic insect control in the vegetable garden. He will share his research on the use of trap crops, shade covers and organic insecticides in this effort and explain what works best in keeping even the most persistent insects from eating our vegetables. The class will last about 1 1/2 hours.

Space is limited so make sure to RSVP to the Extension office at 770-288-8421.
