Dean Krauskopf, Ph.D., host of The Gardening Show on News/Talk 760 WJR, will put weather conditions into a broader context, share the latest information about the top problems he expects gardeners to deal with this year, and provide links to accurate information you might use or pass on to others. He will also answer your gardening questions.
Dean retired from MSU as the Integrated Crop Management Agent for Southeastern Michigan. He taught many Master Gardener training classes, often spoke at Growing with Master Gardeners, and is the inspiration for MGAWC's Dean Krauskopf Award for volunteer contributions to community education. His doctorate in horticulture is from North Carolina State University.
Tollgate Farm is on the northwest corner of Meadowbrook and 12 Mile Roads in Novi, near Twelve Oaks Mall, but a world away. Tollgate volunteers meet in the conference center adjacent to the eastern-most barn and silo, by garden #4 on the map from the link below.
The meeting begins at 7ish. MGAWC members are invited. There is no fee. There is plenty of parking in the main lot off of Meadowbrook Road. You may want to come early and visit the many gardens, http://tollgate.msu.edu/gardens/Brochure%20darretta%202016.pdf.
