Winter Workshop, Cherry Glen Learning Farm
–No more nucs available–
Do you know what to do if your hives are part of a pesticide drift incident? Learn what to do and how to do it from the Pesticide Action Network (PAN) Iowa organizer and farmer Carmen Black. PAN and its Iowa partners have been a national leader in drift reporting for the past few years. Attendees will use the latest PAN Toolkit, and have practice with role playing and scripts. PAN also has a list of private testing labs and other resources for pesticide drift. After our pesticide talk, stay to visit over organic Midwest popcorn and get a pre-cut nuc kit to assemble on site or at home. Kits come with a cut list and instructions.
