There’s No Such Thing as a Bad Bug.

What’s in your Back Yard?

          “There’s no such thing as a Bad Bug. What’s in your back yard?” will be the topic of Master  Gardener Janet Dolder’s presentation when she shares her love of gardening on Wednesday, August.1 at 6:30 p.m.

          Her presentation is sponsored by the East Longmeadow Garden Club and will be held in the Community Room at the East Longmeadow Library.

          A member of the Western Mass Master Gardeners, she will talk about common pests and beneficial insects that are found in the home landscape, how to recognize them and how to encourage some while discouraging others.

          For more information, contact George Kingston, East Longmeadow Garden club president, at 525-6742 or Lavada Munoz, club vice-president, at 525-3910.

           Nancy Heath, a founding member of the East Longmeadow Garden Club, was awarded the Club’s Green Thumb plaque at the Club’s meeting on May 24.  The award was given in recognition of her contributions to the Club during the past 49 years. 

            She has been active in all  aspects of the Club’s endeavors including serving as president for six years.
