When it comes to rat control, there may not be shortcuts or magic bullets, but the right knowledge and tools can do a lot to address existing problems or prevent them in the first place. BBG is delighted to host an expert from the NYC Department of Health who will tailor the “Rat Academy” curriculum specifically to urban gardening issues. Street tree beds will be a focus. Bring your questions!

This workshop is free, but preregistration is required. Take home a free plant to try!
