MC MG Spring Conference, and climate change links

Readers in Montgomery County and environs are invited to register for the upcoming MoCo Master Gardeners’ Spring Conference on February 25:

Register (and read the event schedule more clearly!) here. I’ll be giving a talk called “Vegetable Gardening When Mother Nature Doesn’t Cooperate,” which is about weather challenges. We hope to have a page up at the GIEI website on this topic by March, which will include links to our pages on plant problems caused by cold, heat, rain, drought, and other weather conditions, and also resources on climate change and extreme weather.

Visit HGIC’s page on gardening and climate change for more information right now. You may also be interested in the National Wildlife Federation’s publication “Gardener’s Guide to Global Warming” and the Union of Concerned Scientists’ “The Climate-Friendly Gardener.” Neither are specific to vegetable gardening, but contain good strategies and useful information for all kinds of plant-growing.
