Event Description

Explore pests on the farm with practical tips for improving your pest management! Kiara Jack of E.S. Cropconsult will lead an in-field lesson on common pests, the importance of plant diversity, and organic pest control options.

Participants will get hands-on experience with identifying garden insects and diseases and monitoring techniques. We'll be using one of the Fresh Roots Urban Farm locations as our outdoor classroom - watch the registration space (, and we will let you know where to meet closer to the workshop date.

This workshop is co-presented by Vancouver Urban Farming Society (VUFS) and Society Promoting Environmental Conservation (SPEC).
