Pest Management the Organic Way

Saturday, April 29, 2017

Instructor: Suzanne Bontempo
$10 - Sponsored by the SFPUC

Chemical fertilizers and pesticides used to be normal tools controlling pests and diseases in home gardens. Now, many gardeners choose alternatives like creating their own compost and home remedies for weeds, snails, bugs and plant disease. In this workshop, you'll learn how to prevent, identify, and treat common garden issues naturally in our beautiful, chemical-free demonstration garden. We'll teach you tricks to keep your garden healthy and thriving year-round!

FAQs

What are my transport/parking options getting to the garden?

There is available street parking, though be advised it can be challenging on weekends. Many buses and trains stop nearby, making public transportation a great option! The 44 O'Shaughnessy, 6 Parnassus, N Judah and other lines all stop nearby.

What should I bring to the workshop?

Classes are held outside in our teaching garden. We recommend bringing a hat & sunscreen, comfortable closed toed shoes and lots of layers. You may want to bring a notebook to take notes on what you are learning and we recommend bringing a full water bottle as well.

Do you cancel classes due to rain?

We try our best not to cancel classes, but if the weather report suggests it is very likely it will be pouring rain during the class time, we will cancel the class that morning. We do hold classes in drizzling weather, and recommend students dress appropriately.

Happy gardening!
