Bucks Beautiful presents “Gardening in Concert with Nature”


Bucks Beautiful’s Fall Lecture Series concludes Dec. 3, with “Gardening in Concert with Nature” at 7 p.m. at the Henry Schmieder Arboretum, Delaware Valley University, Life Sciences Building, 700 E. Butler Ave., Doylestown.

As gardens play an increasingly important role in environmentally friendly living, so do garden problems. Bucks County Horticulture Hotline expert Bill Pasko will discuss the management of garden problems in ways that are friendly to wildlife and the environment.

Pasko is a member of the Penn State Bucks County Extension Master Gardner Class of 2013, and has served on the Selection Committee for the past four years. He provides technical support for the program, including acting as virtual meeting host for statewide training classes. He also operates the Garden Hotline, which answers gardening questions and solves horticultural problems for the general public in Bucks County. His specialty is Integrated Pest Management utilizing environmentally safe techniques. Pasko also is a member of the Bucks County Master Gardener Program Advisory Board.

Tickets for the lecture are available at the door. Arboretum Members, DVU students and military receive free admission. Senior Citizens, non-DVU students, DVU faculty and staff tickets are $3, and nonmembers pay $5. Refreshments will be offered at 6:30 p.m., followed by the lecture at 7 p.m.

The talk is co-sponsored by Delaware Valley University and the Bucks County Master Gardener Program. The lecture series will resume in early spring.
