>“Alaska’s Sustainable Gardening Handbook” has been updated. This publication was first produced in 2010 as an adaptation of “Sustainable Gardening: The Oregon-Washington Master Gardener Handbook” and this is the first revision. It is used as one component in Master Gardener training programs for Extension volunteers in Alaska but is also a must-have for all Alaska gardeners. UAF Extension agriculture and horticulture agents have contributed their expertise to provide information on topics such as basic botany, lawns, vegetable gardening, orchards, entomology, pest management and more. Call 877-520-5211 to order the handbook.
>The 2016 Invasive Species Workshop will be held in Fairbanks Oct. 25-27. The annual workshop convenes land managers, scientists, nongovernmental organizations and agricultural producers to share the latest information on invasive species detection, management and science. Registration is available online and more information can be found on the workshop website.
