8:00 p.m. Dean Krauskopf, PhD
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.
To encourage gardeners to sign up for an annual membership ($15 US a year, October 1-September 30), the board is testing a $5 guest fee for non-members attending individual MGAWC programs. The non-member guest fee does not apply to current U of M-Dearborn students.
