The free event is aimed at local growers, gardeners, and horticultural enthusiasts, as well as anyone with a keen interest in plant health and pathology, such as students or landscapers.
Gardening broadcaster and writer Greenwood, who is a trained botanist and expert in crop protection, will share experiences from her career, which included more than a decade running the plant pathology department at the RHS's garden at Wisley.
In addition to Greenwood's presentation, Iwan Edwards of North Wales Wildlife Trust will be on hand to talk about the OPAL ‘citizen science’ project, Dr David Skydmore, project director of Horticulture Wales, will speak about the increasing importance of plant pathology, while Richard Lewis, senior lecturer in Rural Studies at Glyndwr University, will outline some of the most common pests and diseases.
Free lunch and refreshments will be provided, and depending on the weather, attendees will also have the option of a tour around Glyndwr University’s Northop campus, including a sustainable woodland which is being restored to its deciduous state.
