editor's note

Pages 17-22 of this booklet deal with disease and insect prevention.

earthly pursuits recommends natural and organic disease and pest control. I have included the sections of the booklet that offer safe solutions and have omitted the sections that advocate chemical/toxic solutions. I have also listed several  resources for more information on natural, organic Integrated Pest Management.

I apologize for not including the pages as part of this historical document but I cannot in good conscience publish methods so totally against my beliefs.

 

Page 17 omitted

earthly pursuits' recommendations for more information about alternative disease and insect prevention and control:

Controlling Pests Ecologically by Dr. Stuart B. Hill, McGill University, Canada
     An interesting paper that talks about deep Integrated Pest Management vs. a shallow chemical approach to controlling pest.

Common Garden Pests
     A database of insects with a drawing, description, the damage they do and natural, organic methods of control.

also see Books - Organic Gardening

"Carrots Love Tomatoes" is a good reference for companion planting - which plants like to be planted closer to each other and may help provide natural pest prevention and which plants do not like each other.
