Love ‘You Bet Your Garden?’ Here’s a chance to meet him and support WPSU

It’s always garden time, but we especially love springtime in Pennsylvania! WPSU-FM invites you to meet Mike McGrath, gardening wizard and host of the radio show “You Bet Your Garden” to learn how to get your garden buzzing with excitement this spring–and support your local NPR station, WPSU-FM. You will have two opportunities!

Here’s the first:

Dinner with Mike McGrath

Friday, April 7, 5:30 p.m.
Pollinators: The Superstars of Spring Gardening

The Atherton Hotel
125 S Atherton St.
State College, PA 16801

Bring on the bees! Learn how important these little workers are for a successful garden and fruit yield, how to attract them with the right plants, and how many kinds of pollinators are busily doing their work in and around our backyards. Mike will also take your questions and be available for photos and book autographs. Tickets are $75 per person, limited seating.

And here’s the second:

Public Presentation
Saturday, April 8, 10:00 a.m.–noon
Pollinators, Planting, and Household Pests

The State Theatre
130 West College Ave.
State College, PA 16801

Join Mike for a light-hearted presentation and Q&A as he offers his experience and tips on fending off garden and household pests without the use of toxic chemicals, caring for lawns and landscapes without losing your mind, and growing without groaning in tough conditions like extreme heat, unending rain, and lousy soil. Tickets are $20 per person in advance; $25 at the door.
