Gardens are in and growing, now here come the bugs! Learn how to go to battle with the critters that want to eat your plants before you do. Don’t panic and spray poisons, come in before the problem is out of hand and learn how to handle these problems in a safe, natural way. Vance will be at the helm to show you the myriad of organic pest controls and natural fungicides that are available, explain how they work, and give some practical advice on keeping your natural garden healthy and thriving. Using beneficial insects in your garden will also be addressed. There will be a question and answer period after the lecture. This workshop is free, and attendees will receive 20% off all purchases after the workshop on Saturday!
