The Greenhouse Patrol

Thursday, September 27, 2018
10:00am – 1:00pm

Elizabeth Park, 1561 Asylum Ave West Hartford, CT 06117

Learn how to identify major groups of greenhouse pests and diseases, and how to treat and prevent them; proper watering regimens for various groups of plants, and general greenhouse procedures, in a 90-minute PowerPoint presentation. Tour the greenhouses for the next hour and a half to see firsthand examples of the problems and challenges we are faced with! Gain practical experience by volunteering to work with the cactus and tropical plants in all four of the Elizabeth Park Greenhouses. We will talk about orchids, tropicals, and cactus, as well as how the gardeners at Elizabeth Park force bulbs, and grow annuals from seed and cuttings. Students must complete three hours of volunteer time in the Elizabeth Park Greenhouses before December 31, 2018, to receive five (5)credits for this course.
