Attracting Bees, Birds and Butterflies to Your Yard

Attracting Bees, Birds and Butterflies to Your Yard
Thursday, March 7, 2019 at 6:30 P.M.
Attracting Bees, Birds, and Butterflies to Your Yard: Did you know most native bees can't sting humans?  Do you appreciate butterflies and birds ornamenting your yard?  Pollinators all, these natives need only food, water, and shelter in order to become regular visitors.  If you have containers, flower boxes, or a garden you already have almost everything you need to attract these beautiful and welcome neighbors.

Betty Sanders is a widely recognized speaker on gardening and environmental subjects. She has lectured at Tower Hill Botanic Garden, Massachusetts Horticultural Society, the Boston Flower Show, and at numerous garden clubs and civic groups throughout New England. A Lifetime Master Gardener, she is also a nationally accredited floral design judge.  Her gardens have been open for the Garden Conservancy Garden Tour.

Betty examined her two acre home garden, she realized that the maintenance and upkeep was beginning to exceed the time and energy she had to give to it.  Thinking back on the gardens she had constructed as a ‘corporate gypsy’ she realized that our gardens need to change as our lives do, even if we stay in the same place.  Her latest garden, built to accompany their retirement dream home, is lawn free, two acres with a very heavy emphasis on native plants.
Wherever she is working in the garden, Betty considers it vital to eliminate virtually all herbicides and pesticides, respect the soil and encourage the use of more native plants in our landscapes.   Her ‘Horticultural Hints’ appear monthly in the Mass Hort Leaflet magazine and on her website, www.BettyOnGardening.com.
Registration is required. This program is funded by a generous donation from the library’s Gift Account as authorized by the Board of Library Trustees.

Pets and Plants

Thursday, March 14, 2019 at 6:30 P.M.
Pets and Plants:  Whether your pet is a cat, dog, chicken, or "other," your pet has the potential to be exposed to your plants indoors, outdoors, or both. There are many sources of information about plant toxicity, but they can often conflict with each other. This presentation will help you to understand what "toxic" and "poisonous" mean to your pets and will provide you with a method to evaluate the pet, the plant, and as horticultural practices to assess how much risk is involved in each situation.

This program is presented by Master Gardener April Daley. Before completing the Massachusetts Master Gardener training course in 2009, April was a veterinary nurse for 25 years. Working in mostly small animal hospitals, April worked for 10 years in Emergency and Critical Care and also has worked as a Wildlife Rehabilitator and in exotic animal medicine. She currently lives and gardens on an acre+ in Upton with a small flock of chickens, one beehive, and two rescue dogs.

Since becoming a Master Gardener, April served for six years on the board of the MMGA including terms as Education Coordinator and President. She has an Advanced Master Gardener Certificate in Weed Ecology awarded in conjunction with the University of Massachusetts and recently trained and volunteers with Worcester Tree Initiative as a Master Tree Steward.

April’s work experience also includes Keeper of the Bressingham Garden and Education Coordinator for Massachusetts Horticultural Society, Volunteer Coordinator and Environmental Educator for Mass Audubon Society, and lead gardener in a fine garden maintenance business. April currently works doing fine garden maintenance and is active in the MMGA as a student mentor, doing gardening and outreach and speaking on Weed Ecology, Keeping Bees, and Pets and Plants.

New England’s General Stores with Ted Reinstein

New England’s General Stores with Ted Reinstein
Monday, March 18, 2019 at 6:30 PM
The general store, as old as America itself, harkens back to a simpler time and a more innocent and rural nation. The general store conjures a country-like place where kids come in to by penny candy, and adults to buy everything from swaths of fabric, to fresh vegetables, to four-penny nails. It was a place to pick up mail, the newspaper, and perhaps tarry a bit on a cold, winter’s morning to chat over a cup of coffee and a warm wood stove. Long before “Cheers,” the general store was the vital and inviting heart of a community, where everyone not only knew your name, but how you took that coffee, how many kids you had, and how’s your dad doing, anyway? And in tough times, it was a place that often treated customers like family, extending credit when no one else would. The general store was real-life Norman Rockwell—deeply woven into America’s cultural identity, an integral part of the nation’s self-portrait from its earliest days. Fact is, the general store is still very much here, and very much in business. What’s more, like the diner, it has seen a resurgence. In some places, it is even being reimagined for a new era.

Ted Reinstein has been a reporter for WCVB-TV/Boston’s “Chronicle”.  In addition, he is a regular contributor for the station’s political roundtable show and writes a weekly opinion column. He is the author of Globe Pequot’s New England Notebook and the upcoming Wicked Pissed: New England's Most Famous Feuds. Registration is required.  This program is supported in part by a grant from the Blackstone Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency and also by a generous donation from the Library’s Gift Account.

Good Bugs and Bad Bugs
Thursday, March 21, 2019 at 6:30 P.M.
Good Bugs & Bad Bugs: Not all insects are bad for the garden.  In fact, we rely on many to rid us of other unwanted invaders.  This presentation describes some of the common beneficial and pest insects that gardeners encounter in New England.  We will take a look their habits and their lifecycles as we discuss how their presence affects the success of our garden year.

Master Gardener Bonnie Power, has an MA in Zoology from Boston University and taught college level science courses for over twelve years before leaving teaching for industry. After she retired she began taking courses to augment her love of gardening by working on certification at Garden in the Woods in Framingham and by becoming a certified Master Gardener in the fall of 2016. In 2015 she began volunteering on a Facebook page for insect identification and began learning about insects. Out of these experiences she developed a talk aimed at gardeners to acquaint them with beneficial and pest species of insects and other arthropods.
