    Who's Really the Pest

    Who's Really the Pest

    Emily’s view on pest control changed when beneficial insects arrived in her garden. Pests are not necessarily a problem to fight. Instead, the approach is more about patience and allowing the garden ecosystem to balance itself without human intervention.

Jacques

Love the podcast. Kevin gives great content and interviews. The only annoying thing is when Jacque speaks, he uses the word “like” in almost EVERY sentence. I like the topics and content that he speaks about but I can’t get through his podcast because of his overuse of fillers. It’s extremely distracting!

Kimmy Nibbler ,

A fellow garden YOLO-er

Love this short form podcast! Easily accessible throughout my busy day. I love that you are looking for my thoughtful design work as you recently said you are a person that just throws it in the garden and sees what happens! That’s totally me so I’m happy to be more intentional in my planning. Thanks for providing a great learning resource :)
