The City of Kelowna is encouraging residents to learn about natural and less-toxic yard care alternatives at the City’s Pesticide Free workshops.
There are seven workshops remaining and if you would like to attend you're asked to register online at kelowna.ca/environment.
These hands-on workshops, led by Cathy Fuller, will explore how to solve pest problems with natural products and provide biological alternatives to chemicals, including beneficial bugs such as nematodes.
The sessions will end with a question and answer period.
Fuller has more than 25 years of landscape design and retail experience and specializes in xeriscape landscape design, turf management consulting, organic pesticide alternatives, small garden designs and integrated pest management.
