Do you have problems with pests in your garden but not sure how to manage them in a way that has minimal negative impact, maximum positive impact on the environment?

There are natural ways to that use the resources provided to us by nature to solve some of your pest problems.

SGA is excited to be able to work with Penny Woodward (author of numerous books on low environmental impact gardening including “Pest Repellent Plants”) who will share her knowledge on how to treat short term pest problems and create long term garden design solutions so pests and predators live in balance.

This Master Class will cover:

  • Tricks, traps, collars, barriers to manage pests
  • Simple sprays and oils made from plants in your garden to control problem pests
  • How beneficial insects can be utilised to attack pests
  • Companion plants to use in your garden
  • How to create a “total environment garden” where pests and predators live in balance

There will be an opportunity to purchase some of Penny’s fabulous books at a discount including Garlic, Pest Repellent Plants, Asian Herbs and Vegetables, Community Gardens, Grow Your Own Herbal Remedies and more.

10% Discount if you book for Penny’s second Master Class on Sustainable Home Grown Garlic

In the afternoon of the same day and at the same venue Penny is presenting the Master Class – Sustainable Home Grown Garlic. If you book both of these classes you can receive a 10% discount on both classes. You will need to book each class separately but use the “2 class disc – Garlic&Pests” ticket option when booking your tickets.

If you do book both classes, bring a bite of lunch and join Penny and myself (Richard) in a chat about SGA, sustainable gardening and other topics of your choice.
