Got weeds? The University of Maine Cooperative Extension is offering a weed identification walk from 6 to 8 PM on Thursday, August 10th at Stutzman's Farm Stand and Bakery located at 891 Douty Hill Road in Sangerville. UMaine Extension educator Donna Coffin will lead the walk and discuss weeds common to vegetable, fruit and other cultivated crops. References to help identify weeds and management strategies will be available. Participants with farm and/or garden weeds they'd like identified are encouraged to bring digital photographs rather than specimens.
Maine Board of Pesticide Control inspector Marilyn Tourtelotte also will give a brief presentation that will include an update on the Worker Protection Standard. Two pesticide recertification credit hours are available for agricultural basic and private applicators.
Register online for the free, public event. For more information, or to request a disability accommodation, contact Coffin at 207-564-3301, 800-287-1491 (toll-free in Maine), or
