Gardening in Louisiana is not for pansies – with the exception of those planted by your front door. Growing a garden requires teachers and students to be physically and mentally active in the garden space.
One of the most challenging aspects of growing a garden in a school setting is pest management. Planting, watering and harvesting are enjoyable gardening activities. We hope this publication helps to make insect control fun – or, at the very least, a little less stressful!
Have you heard of the term integrated pest management, also referred to as IPM? Your school probably has an IPM coordinator. As a school garden coordinator, you should get to know this person and let him or her know about your gardening activities.
