Friday, December 15, 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm – The Enemy of My Enemy is My Friend: Using Biological Products to Fight Diseases and Pests Webinar

The use of biological products for growth enhancement and disease and pest control has changed the treatment programs of many organic (and even non-organic) plant, turf and tree care professionals. Joe Magazzi, from Green Earth Ag & Turf, will discuss how advances made in biological products have resulted in effective treatments that target the pest and not the rest. This December 15 webinar begins at 12:30 pm and is sponsored by the Ecological Landscape Alliance. Free for ELA members, $10 for nonmembers.

Tuesday, December 12, 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm – Invasive Plant Control Without Chemicals Webinar

Persistent, Relentless, Tenacious…such are the words we deploy to describe our nemesis weeds and invasive species. Invasive plant species colonize degraded landscapes and overtake native plants robbing the area of critical ecosystem services. These exotic plants spread rampantly when they are free of natural checks and balances found in their native range. A handful of high-impact, aggressive non-natives affect soil health, biodiversity, and even land access. Who wants to hack their way through a tangle of unyielding multi-flora rose, common buckthorn, and oriental bittersweet? Rather than turning to chemical options, we too can draw upon Persistence, Relentlessness, and Tenacity to control these invasive plants.

Friday, December 8, 11:30 am – The History of Cacao

Just in time for the Holidays, Master Chocolatier Raymond Hebert presents a History of Cacao from Pre-Columbian Central America to the Palaces of Western Europe. From aphrodisiac, to health food, to confection and back to health food, Cacao has come full circle. In addition, Ray will discuss new archaeological discoveries in North America that show the presence of Cacao in ancient Native American sites in the West that are re-writing the history of the movement of Cacao from Meso-America to other areas on the planet, where it cannot possibly grow on its own. The new evidence being offered suggest that 1000 years ago trade in cacao moved over a 1200 mile range to the North. This Cape Cod Museum of Natural History Lunch and Learn will take place Friday, December 8 at 11:30 am at the Museum, 869 Main Street, Route 6A, in Brewster.
