Pest Management Webinar

October 25 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Are you tired of pests eating your edible plants before you can? Have you tried all natural ways to get rid of them, but they don’t seem to work?

We have something in store for you! Edible Routes is offering just what you need for healthy plants: an ‘all about pests and solutions’ session with our expert, Kapil. In this Pest Management workshop you will learn about common local pests, why they infest your plants, the problems and symptoms of pest invasion and key natural solutions to befriend them.

Why is it important to befriend pests? – Pests aren’t a problem, they’re our friends as long as you manage them right! Less than 1% of bugs compete with us for food so you have nothing to worry about. Adequate pest and disease management demands an understanding of the dynamic biological system in which a plant exists. Pest populations become a problem because of an imbalance in the environment.

This is the last session of the four-part series “My Edible Winter Garden”. Through this series, you will delve into individual aspects of kitchen garden maintenance and build a strong connection to your plants.

Focus of the workshop:

– The difference between chemical pest control and biological pest control
– How do the natural pest control solutions work?
– Different types and levels of natural pest control
– Beneficial vs Non-beneficial Pests
– Integrated Pest Management
