What's Bugging YOU?
Please join us Sunday, September 22, 2019 at North Haven Gardens when our speaker will be horticulturist and entomologist Megan Proska.
2:30 pm refreshments, 3:00 pm meeting start.
Megan will cover a wide array of both good and bad insects that you might find in your North Central Texas garden.
It’s been said “if something isn’t eating your plants, then your garden isn’t part of the ecosystem”.
So, come learn about which bad bug might be making a lunch out of your landscape…or…might instead become a tasty snack for one of the good guys.
Megan, a Senior Horticulture Manager at the Dallas Arboretum,has always loved being outside. Her passion started from an early age with picking vegetables out of her Mom’s garden. She began volunteering with the Botanical Research Institute of Texas in 6th grade and continues to volunteer with them when she can.
A Texas A&M graduate with degrees in both Horticulture and Entomology, Megan expanded her knowledge through being awarded a fellowship with Kew Gardens in the United Kingdom. Upon returning to the States, she worked at a tree nursery before taking a supervisor position at the Dallas Arboretum. From there Megan moved into manager positions for the Children’s Garden and then Trials Gardens.
The Greater Dallas Organic Garden Club is looking forward to seeing you!
Bring a friend.
As always, GDOGC speaker meetings are free and open to all.
