Very Edible Gardens presents:

The Backyard Ecosystem: Organic Pest Control And Adventures In The Microcosmos

There are an estimated 10 quadrillion microorganisms living in a suburban organic backyard. Be introduced to common insects in your backyard and learn to identify them. What strange creatures live in the soil and why are they important? Who are the good guys? Who are the bad guys? How do we facilitate the good guys for natural pest control? Behold the beauty of the ladybird, and opalescent butterfly pupae. Be awed by the tiny lerp building a beautiful sugar temple. See the ferocious lacewing larvae in an aphid feeding frenzy. And learn about the fantastical life of the soil.
