"Insects and Diseases:  Recognition and Control"

Join us for a lively evening as two members of the staff at the Bernalillo County Extension Office will describe approaches to engage common pests and diseases as well as those not so common to our local area.

John Garlisch, Extension Agriculture Agent, works with 4-H youth, assists local farmers with business and production planning, facilitates agricultural educational programs and outdoor classroom projects with area schools, and answers questions from the public concerning the identification of plants and their culture, production, diseases, and pests.  John earned a BS in Horticulture and an MS in Agriculture Consumer Economics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Illinois.

Graeme Davis, Horticulturist, recently joined the Bernalillo County staff and is actively involved with the master gardener program.  Graeme (pronounced Gram) is an NMSU Graduate in Entomology, Plant Pathology and Weed Science. He has worked at the NMSU Campus Arthropod Museum.


We will meet every Tuesday in May
6 - 7pm to attack the weeds
