Discover pests, predators and pollinators.

Saturday 7th April at 10.30am

Is that a good bug or a bad bug you ask?

Learn how to identify common pests, predators and pollinators in your garden, and discuss organic treatments to keep your home garden healthy.

In this workshop, you'll learn about integrated pest management, and how to get the good bugs to do all the hard work for you. 

By attracting beneficial insects into your garden, you'll reduce the need for store bought sprays by making your own, and create a 'total environment garden' where pests and predators live in balance.
