The Peninsular Agricultural Research Station (PARS) will offer the next class in its Backyard Apple School on Aug. 25, 4-6 pm, to get participants started on growing apples. This session will focus on pests: the insects, mammals and diseases that can threaten apples; and how to combat them sustainably and protect trees in the future.
