Organic Pest Control Workshop

  • Oak Park Main Library 834 Lake Street Oak Park, IL, 60301 United States (map)

Join Deep Roots Project to learn many tips on how to prevent pest in your edible garden. Preventing garden pests is far easier (and more fun!) than dealing with pest outbreaks after they show up. Even some natural sprays can harm your soil and your plants. So creative, vigilant and knowledgeable prevention is best. If you fail at preventing pests, then learn from them.

One of the keys to natural pest management is patience. In a new edible garden healthy soil organisms need to mature and gain dominance over pests. The beneficial soil microbes help feed plants, keeping them healthy and well-protected against pests. If you spray, it could disrupt their maturing process and delayed the balance needed.
