Accurate diagnosis of plant problems is a key factor in plant health and management. As county Extension offices rely more heavily on Master Gardeners to answer homeowner gardening questions, it is important to provide the most up-to-date information on plant pests and their management.

The class includes a full color pocket guide on insect and disease pests in the vegetable garden courtesy of the Pesticide Education Program. This track also includes an insect and disease walk on campus, and time spent at the Penn State Arboretum. The majority of this track will be held outdoors and will require moderate walking.

To Be Covered

  • Ornamental Plant Insect & Disease Walk-about
  • Promoting Plant Health in the Landscape
  • Vegetable Diseases


For outdoor sessions, participants are asked to wear comfortable shoes and appropriate clothing.

What to Bring

Please bring name badge, water bottle, notebook, pen, and sunscreen.
