Our garden does not use pesticides or poison to kill bugs. We pick them off by hand and squash or drown them. This is a great activity for kids. Bugs are small and harmless, but eat our plants. Kids love to squash them and it helps keep our plants healthy. We give the kids a garden tour and explain how we grow food organically and how they are helping us feed others for free. We squish bugs on Tuesday, Wednesday and the first three Saturday mornings 9:00 am till 12:00 noon of each month, plus Friday afternoons from 3pm until 6pm.
