The garden guild meeting this month is going to address something we all battle with--how to share the garden with the pests but get the upper hand. Some of the pests turn into friends as they grow up and some do not. Organic gardening makes a commitment to not use heavy chemical pesticides but instead use a variety of means to promote a healthy environment while having plants that flourish.
The speaker this week, Richard Fadal of TexasScapes has long used less traditional methods on the green spaces in Wells Branch to keep our parks green and our water supply uncontaminated. It will be interesting to learn ways that each household can use to make their yards beautiful by treating the pests. The meeting is at 7pm on March 3rd at the library.
