Designing a garden for a small space is enough of a challenge. But once you have created one, how do you fend off the uninvited guests? Although insects, critters, fungi, and other plant diseases are part of gardening, there are ways to discourage the most destructive pests. Bring your questions, and let’s find a solution!

This class is part of our Urban Gardening Series a set of classes designed to help city dwellers grow healthy, sustainable, and beautiful urban gardens.
