Tick Borne Illnesses and Native Plants for Shade Workshop at Pharsalia
March 21 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Tick Borne Illnesses and Native Plants for Shade Workshop at Pharsalia 10AM to 1PM. Dr. Joe Pond, retired Doctor of Medicine and Cardiology and Master Gardener since 2005, will be speaking on two subjects. The first session will be on ticks and tick borne illnesses with prevention and diagnostic principles. He will then cover the four most common diseases in Virginia including the “meat allergy”. This program is aimed at non-medical audiences leaving out the technical “doctor talk”. The second session will be on native plants for Central Virginia. Dr. Pond will go over the selection that he has found that works in this area but is not inclusive of all plants that could work. Pharsalia will be offering some native plants for sale on the day of his talk. A wonderful catered lunch is included. Fee.
