Fairlawn Garden Talks 2017
6 pm - 8 pm, Thursday, April 6 – Beyond Pollinators: Other Beneficial Insects in the Landscape
Patrick (PJ) Liesch, Director of the UW-Madison Insect Diagnostic Lab, UW-Extension Entomologist

Pollinating insects are important beneficial creatures in the landscape. However, it’s easy to overlook the many other beneficial insects around us, including the predators and parasites providing biological control, and the detritivores helping break down animal and plant materials. Come take a closer look at the many other beneficial insects that help humans. PJ has been involved with insect-related research, outreach and Extension since 2005. He is an avid insect collector and has an inordinate fondness for beetles.

Fairlawn Garden Talks 2017

Thursday, March 16 – Aspects of Healing Horticulture
Mike Maddox, UW-Extension Horticulture Educator, ISA Certified Arborist, AHTA Certificate in Horticultural Therapy

Gardening is often called someone’s "personal therapy,” and science now reveals how interacting with plants benefits an individual’s emotional, physical, intellectual, and spiritual well-being. In this presentation, you’ll be introduced to the research behind horticultural therapy and see examples of it in action with a variety of populations. The program will also include garden tool tips and tricks to ensure your own ability to garden throughout life. Mike’s personal garden is a collision of posh plants alongside compost pile salvages creating a chaotic collection of lawn, woodies, perennials, vegetables, herbs, and annuals—oh, and weeds!
