With more and more people wanting to grow organic food and medicine in their backyards, knowledge of herbs is essential. From companion planting to compost tea to feeding chickens to seasoning dinner to insect bite relief, herbs are a gardener’s best friend. These amazing plants are at home in flower beds, vegetable gardens, rooftops and containers, making it easy for everyone to be able to grow and use fresh herbs no matter where you call home.

Clackamas County Chapter Meeting: Sex on Six Legs - Gail Langellotto-Rhodaback, OSU Associate Professor, Urban and Community Horticulture Extension, and OSU Extension Master Gardener Program Coordinator

Gardening Events - Wed, 09/28/2016 - 6:09am
Monday, September 12, 2016 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Insects are capable of highly complex courting, mating and parenting behaviors, despite having a collection of neurons in place of a brain. Nuptial gifts, maternal care, male ornaments as honest advertisers of health and fitness, female choice and even traumatic insemination: insect sex is stranger than you could imagine!

Gail earned a B.S. in Biology and M.S. & Ph.D. in Entomology, from the University of Maryland.  Since 2007, she has served as the statewide coordinator of the OSU Extension Master Gardener Program.  She currently studies garden bees, but used to study spider cannibalism and planthopper sperm, among other topics.

Gail is helping to develop a better research-based understanding of how to design and sustainably manage gardens and parks to maximize ecosystem services.  Her Extension and Outreach efforts are focused on communicating these and other research-backed management practices to home gardeners, commercial landscapers, and others.
