Managing pests in the garden - Blacktown Showground

Have you been disappointed with the produce from your garden because pests or diseases have got to it first?

In this workshop you’ll discover organic solutions for garden problems like black spot on roses, whitefly on tomatoes, grubs on your cabbage, weeds and more!

Make your own pesticides and find out about companion planting and crop rotation. Bring along some of your diseased leaves or pest problems to solve during the workshop. There will be a Powerpoint presentation and some practical activities.


For safety reasons and the comfort of others children under 16 years are not permitted to this workshop.

This is free for Blacktown residents and places are limited so booking through Eventbrite is essential.
