Please join us for a fun and lively 1-hour presentation via the online platform Zoom with Master Gardener, Barbara Wexler-Hall. Barbara will present a new workshop titled “What Evil Lurks in the Heart of our Gardens?” Both day and evening sessions are available on Wednesday, July 29th from 12 – 1 PM and Wednesday, August 5th from 7 – 8 PM.

“What Evil Lurks in the Heart of our Gardens?” will introduce you to murder, mystery and mayhem while exploring the poisonous plants around us. Plants are used for food, medicine and materials like clothing and beauty products, however some can be painful, intoxicating or deadly. What you don’t know might kill you!
Barbara Wexler-Hall has served the gardening community for nearly 20 years and is an Emeritus Master Gardener Volunteer. When she is not exploring the plants in her garden, Barbara is an educator of student nurses at Orange County Community College. As a nurse, Barbara specialized in maternal and child health. Now she gives her love to the “furry children” through a variety of animal rights activities.
