082 : Pests in a No-Till Garden – Myth vs Reality

Episode 82 - Pests in a No-Till Garden - Myth vs Reality

The prospect of an ecologically sustainable organic garden that is presented by the “no-till” or “permaculture” approach to gardening is attractive to gardeners for many reasons: there’s the low cost; the minimal work; the high quality produce; and, the peace of mind that you get from knowing that the way you are growing your food is not a detriment to the environment, or the living things that share the garden ecosystem. With all that having been said, and despite many claims to the contrary – no-till gardens are not pest free – at least not initially. In this episode I discuss the pest problems that I have encountered thus far my garden, an how I deal with them.
