“Gardening with Integrated Pest Management” is the featured program at the monthly meeting of the Trevose Horticultural Society on Tuesday, May 23, at 7 p.m. at the Bensalem Senior Center, 1850 Byberry Road, Bensalem.
Guest speaker Rebecca Kluempen will introduce to home gardeners how to incorporate Integrated Pest Management into their flower, fruit and vegetable gardens. IPM is a process that combines different methods to manage pests in a way that minimizes risks to human health and the environment.
Kluempen received her horticulture degree from DelVal University, where she was the DelVal Plant Breeding Club president. While employed at Burpee Seed Company, Kluempen learned about vegetable-based IPM prior to transitioning to ornamentals. She is currently manager of the IPM department at Medford Nursery in Burlington County, New Jersey, where they specialize in shrubs and perennials.
All meetings are open to the public; a donation of $5 is requested from non-members. For more information, visit trevosegardeners.org, call 856-866-9163 or follow on Facebook.
