A healthy and productive garden starts with planning. Prevention is the best approach when it comes to managing pests and diseases in an organic garden. Once pests and diseases make themselves at home in the garden, it can be more difficult to eradicate them. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to set-up your garden for success. We’ll learn about garden planning and best management practices for crop health, including:

  • Spacing
  • Healthy soil
  • Watering
  • Identifying pests and diseases
  • Crop rotation
  • Companion planting
  • Attracting beneficial insects
  • Distinguishing beneficial from pest insects
