2 Lectures in One Morning: Tick Borne Illnesses and Native Plants for Shade with Dr. Joe Pond

Dr. Joe Pond, retired Doctor of Medicine and Cardiology and Master Gardener since 2005, will be at Pharsalia speaking on two subjects. The first session will be on ticks and tick borne illnesses with prevention and diagnostic principles. He will then cover the four most common diseases in Virginia including the “meat allergy”. This program is aimed at non-medical audiences leaving out the technical “doctor talk”.

The second session will be on native plants for Central Virginia. Dr. Pond will go over the selection that he has found that works in this area but is not inclusive of all plants that could work. Pharsalia will be offering some native plants for sale on the day of his talk.

Dr. Pond is a first time speaker at Pharsalia, well known and highly recommended. We are excited to have him here!!

A wonderful catered lunch is included in the fee for $65.00.
