About

This two-part workshop will provide an introduction to Integrated Pest Management (IPM), which is an approach to managing pests naturally without the use of chemical pesticides. You’ll learn how to recognize and deal with common garden pests, and how to attract beneficial wildlife – like pollinators – to your garden.


There will be *free* wood-fired pizza lunch featuring local veggies, prepared by the Wild Willow team.


The second part of this workshop will introduce you to the parts and equipment needed to set up a micro irrigation system and walk you through how to get started.
