Gardening can feel like a difficult balancing act between avoiding harsh chemicals, allowing for insects and wildlife to come to your garden and stopping pests munching on your prized plants. But it doesn’t have to be, you can have a wildlife friendly garden that helps you manage pests, without any damaging chemical use.

In this session you’ll learn a variety of techniques on how to manage pests in your garden without damaging plants or wildlife, from companion plants, to nematodes and friendly insects. We’ll go through an arsenal of easy-to-use and efficient techniques to keep your plot healthy and mostly pest free.
