WVSU Extension Service and NRCS to Host Pesticide Management Workshop Thursday
INSTITUTE, W.Va. – West Virginia State University (WVSU) Extension Services’ Agriculture and Natural Resources (ANR) team will host a Proper Plant Health and Pesticide Management Workshop on Thursday, April 20, as part of their Community Garden Workshop Series. 

This workshop will be held from 6-8 p.m. in the multi-purpose room of The Dr. Hazo W. Carter, Jr. Integrated Research and Extension Building on WVSU’s campus, building 36 on the campus map found here.

Participants of this workshop will be acquiring more information on the topic of pesticides, pesticide management, and proper plant health. All materials will be provided by the Extension ANR team and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Oasis grant with which they are funded. Pesticide credits are available.

The ANR team's Community Garden Workshop Series was made to promote the usage of gardening resources and agricultural sciences, and will be held the third Thursday of each month through October 2023. Participants of these workshops will learn proper gardening, planting, harvesting, and garden profit techniques while also participating in the planting of a large-scale community garden planned for next year's use.

These workshops are part of a federally funded grant provided by the USDA NRCS. All 13 workshops are free to attend and are available for any West Virginia community member.
