An Afternoon With Mike McGrath

Mike McGrath is giving the dirt on compost in Dayton!

WYSO and Greene County Parks & Trails are excited to host author, columnist, radio personality, and expert gardener Mike McGrath, host of You Bet Your Garden.

You Bet Your Garden offers fiercely organic advice to gardeners far and wide: Tips on caring for plants, fending off pests, wrestling with weeds, dealing with disease, and all the other fun things we outdoor enthusiasts enjoy so much.  

With a focus on his Book of Compost Mike will make a presentation that takes a breezy, light-hearted, and sometimes (OK, frequently) manic approach to the topic of composting. With wit and humor to bear he will explain why compost improves soil structure; why it provides the perfect amount of food for every plant; how it fights plant diseases more safely and effectively than any chemical fungicide; and how to make your own.

When: Saturday October 3rd at 11:00am
Where: NEW VENUE: Greene County Media Room, 541 Ledbetter Rd., Xenia (click here for map)
