Williamson County Public Library
Want to learn how to garden and be kind to the environment at the same time? Why not reduce your environmental impact? This program is not so much “anti-chemical” as it is “pro-gardening.” We will focus on the components of environmental stewardship and offer a basic overview of gardening with emphasis on low impact methodology. By improving/building soil health, utilizing companion and trap crops, and practicing specific, easily implemented cultural controls, you can improve the overall health of your garden with the aim of growing a naturally resistant garden.
Register so the presenter can have enough handouts for everyone!
Our speaker, Amy Dismukes, is the UT/TSU Horticulture Extension Agent for Williamson County.

Amy conducts both commercial and residential site visits throughout the county to diagnose and resolve issues with insects, plant diseases, and weeds.
