The presentation will take place first on January 6th at 6:30 pm at the Round Rock Library, 216 E. Main Street, then on January 11th at 7:00 pm at Cedar Park Library, 550 Discovery Blvd. 7 p.m. at the Brushy Creek Community Center, 16318 Great Oaks Drive, Round Rock.

Then on January 10th at 7 p.m., the AgriLife Extension Office’s Master Gardeners will present Pest Free Organically by Jay White, owner and editor of Texas Gardener Magazine, 100 Wilco Way, Room 226, Georgetown or virtually through his website. The program aims to help local gardeners to keep their gardens and greenhouses free of pests using organic methods, according to a statement from the office.
