Wildflower Meadows for Pollinators
(07:00 PM - 08:30 PM)

Native bees and honey bees, alike, are suffering from a lack of food and forage habitat. Bees rely on a continuous source of quality pollen and nectar to feed themselves and their brood. By planting wildflower meadows, we can help provide bees with the flowering habitat they need for survival. Amy Papineau, UNH Cooperative Extension Field Specialist in Food & Agriculture, will discuss the many threats to the health of our native bee and honey bee populations and the steps involved in planting and maintaining a long-lived, diverse wildflower meadow to support our local pollinators.

Supervisory Registration Certificate- General Use
(All day)

New Hampshire requires that anyone applying pesticides commercially must be certified as a commercial pesticide applicator. This certification is required regardless of whether the applicator gets paid for the service or whether the pesticide would be classified as general use, including over the counter home owner type pesticides, or restricted use.

 

To be eligible for this Supervisory Registration Certificate a person needs to have completed 8 hours of general use instruction (core training). In order for an individual to obtain this new certification they need to participate in a series of training classes, pass a written exam and an oral board, plus show proof of insurance.

 

This instruction is intended to be a review of the information found in the Pesticide Safety Education Program study core manual and the Turf (G2) and/or the Right of Way (B) categories. It is advised that participants purchase and read manuals prior to attending the sessions. Also attending these courses does not guarantee passing the State Certification Exam.

Seed Saving for the Home Gardener
(06:30 PM - 08:00 PM)

By saving seed from your home vegetable or flower garden, you can help maintain genetic biodiversity, perpetuate heirloom varieties, or even develop your own unique variety through controlled pollinations. Seed saving can also be simply a fun way to grow your own seeds for next year's garden. Whatever your motivation may be, an understanding of the biology and science of seed production will help ensure that your efforts result in a harvest of quality seed. Amy Papineau, UNHCE Field Specialist, Food & Agriculture, will discuss the basics of growing plants for seed, seed extraction and collection methods, and specifics for many common garden plants through hands-on demonstration.
