Organic Pest Management

Register here.

Brown spots on your tomatoes? Is something eating your lettuce? Come learn how organic pest and disease management is easier than you think. By learning how to grow a healthy garden using organic techniques your edibles will inherently be more resistant to disease, drought, flooding, and pest pressure. When plants have their basic needs met, they are less vulnerable. Jessie Banhazl will explain why organic methods cost less, require less effort, and are healthier for you and the environment in which you live.

Workshop participants will leave with the knowledge of:

Organic management strategies
Preventative techniques
Common insects, diseases and animal pests
Organic products to be bought and made using products found in the home
