Mild winters, summer droughts, and heavy storms are impacting growers throughout the region. More garden pests and diseases are surviving the winter, and weed issues are changing. Come share what you’ve been experiencing with the changing climate in your garden and discuss what to do about it with Dr. Darcy Telenko, regional vegetable extension specialist for the Cornell Vegetable Program, who currently serves twelve western New York counties, where she focuses on fresh market vegetable production, weed management, and climate change resiliency.

Join us at 5:00 p.m. (before the workshop) for a tour of Espíritu Tierra Community Garden at 5at 203 South Second Street (weather permitting).

Facilitated by Dr. Darcy Telenko, Cornell Cooperative Extension, El Puente, and GreenThumb.
