CORRECTION Garden club Weed'em & Reap meeting this Friday March 9th. CORRECTIONPosted Wednesday, March 7, 2012, at 12:59 PM
I was just reminded that we were going to try to meet on the Square if it was not raining so we could discuss the garden area!!! Let's meet at 6:00 on the square and then can drop by the restaurant?
We have another garden club meeting coming up this coming Friday March 9th at the New Century Restaurant on Madison Street in Shelbyville. We start drifitn in around 6:30 and usually finish by 8:30.
We are going to have a 20-30 minute presentation on organic gardening this week and that should start around 7:00 so if you are planning to eat, come a little earlier so you can fill up the plate.
Some people relate organic and sustainable gardening as being the same. Organic is sustainable but sustainable does not necessarily mean it is all organic.
Likewise, among organic enthusiasts there are some who do not believe in using any type of non-specific insecticide while other might use pyrethrum derived from various chrysanthemum plants or rotenone which comes from the Lonchocarpus and Derris species. These two will kill honey bee or most other harmful insects.
I guess it could be similar to the differences between vegan or vegetarians. I am not sure of all the differences but one will eat eggs or cheese, while another won't. Is that correct?
I am not aware of terminology that defines the organic differences.
