Event Type

Have burning questions about the invasive jumping worms we are finding wiggling around in our gardens? Join Maine State Horticulturist Gary Fish to learn more about the invasive ‘jumping worm’ in our forests and gardens. This informative presentation will cover the presence of jumping worms in Maine which will be followed by a community conversation. Don’t worry, there will be time for questions too!

Gary Fish has been the Maine State Horticulturist since 2015. Formerly he was a manager for the Board of Pesticides Control for 28 years and since 1985 has been an off and on practicing Licensed Professional Forester. Gary grew up in Farmington, Maine. An entomologist from birth, he was inspired to love plants by his mother, who always grew beautiful roses and rock gardens.

This event is part of our annual Winter Garden Workshop series: Growing Literacy. Every year, the Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust offers this series of events to engage with the community, support the Tom Settlemire Community Garden, and offer skill-building exercises for gardeners of all abilities. These workshops are a wonderful opportunity to learn from master gardeners and experts on a variety of gardening subjects. This year we are excited to host six workshops in collaboration with Growing to Give and Curtis Memorial Library. Two of these workshops will be held online via zoom, and four will be in-person at Curtis Memorial Library. Bring your curiosity, questions, and join us! 

Thank you to Camden National Bank for sponsoring this series!
