Control Pests Naturally

Create a Pest and Disease Resistant Landscape for your Farm or Garden

 

It's disheartening seeing our hard work destroyed by pests and diseases. And unfortunately, it's getting tougher, with pest and disease issues changing due to climate change, combined with collapsing populations of insects and birds providing free pest control services.

We can switch to purchasing non-toxic pest controls and good bugs to control bad bugs. But creating pest-resistant landscapes for our farms and gardens, we get help with controlling pests without spending a cent!

Understanding the ecological principles, participants learn how to:

1. Grow healthy, pest and disease-resistant plants
2. Reduce the impacts of soil-borne pests and diseases
3. Create food sources and habitats for predators and parasites
4. Reduce impacts using good growing practices

They start developing practical solutions to grow healthy food for themselves rather than the bugs!

Who Benefits from this Workshop?

Learning from Nature supports farmers and food gardeners interested in exploring non-standard approaches to solve natural resource issues. We support growers to develop practical eco-logical solutions suiting their growing conditions and what they grow.
