Outsmart Pests: Organic Pest Management
Thursday, May 25, 2017 (6:30PM - 8:30PM)
Hosted by Tilth Alliance @ Good Shepherd Center, Room 107

Improve your garden by managing garden pests and problems -- without any pesticides! Now that your garden is growing, all you have to do is sit back and watch, right? But wait, what's eating holes in your broccoli? What should be done about all of those weeds? Why are your tomatoes brown?

Come learn how to avoid chemicals by using organic practices to manage pest bugs, weeds and diseases. Learn the art and science of attracting beneficial bugs to pollinate your crops and reduce harmful insects that damage your veggies.

In this class:
· Learn about the Integrated Pest Management (IPM) system and what it means for organic gardeners
· Meet some common garden pests and weeds, and safe solutions for managing them
· Go on a bug hunt in the garden to identify good and bad bugs
· Get resources to help you continue problem solving pests in your own backyard

This dynamic class features a lecture, slideshow, garden tour and pest troubleshooting activities.

This class is a great follow-up to Secrets of Companion Planting offered the previous Thursday. Sign up for both classes for a full day of learning and a discount! If you purchase the individual ticket for $65, you will be registered for both classes. Visit the Secrets of Companion Planting page to register for this deal.
