602: Partnering with Nature
A chat with Jessica Walliser
In This Garden Chat:
Jessica Walliser returns for a riveting discussion about unique ways we can partner with nature that will enable a thriving garden. Many perceive bugs or mushrooms as a pest problem, however, Jessica points out that fungi and insects can actually be an indicator of other things happening in your garden. Jessica guides us through different ways that we can utilize nature to create a symbiotic ecosystem and identifying the difference between pests versus beneficial bugs.
