Is it realistic to imagine an urban garden—or a city—without rats?

On Tuesday, October 5 at 6:30 p.m., urban gardeners and other city dwellers will gather at BBG to hear from three experts on NYC’s most unwelcome inhabitants. The panelists will tackle rats from top to bottom, and, along the way, answer some of attendees most vexing questions and address tales of woe. Guests are sure to leave with a sunnier outlook, along with helpful tips on managing infestations and a suite of preventive measures that will help avoid traps and toxins. $15 or $10 for members; register online or by calling 718-623-7220.
