Integrated Pest Management

Austin Community College’s Integrated Pest Management (IPM) system provides guidelines to enhance and protect the ecosystems and biodiversity of the Austin Community College’s Campuses

 

Garden Features:

Vegetables/Herbs

Vegetables/Herbs
Plants with edible leaves or fruits. Growing your own food not only tastes better, it may also help improve overall health and nutrition by decreasing exposure to pesticides and pollution related to food production. Plus, growing your own food can cut costs on groceries!
 

Perennial/Bulbs

Perennial/Bulbs
Plants that live two or more years and often regrow each season in their native habitats. They create extensive root systems that help stabilize soil, prevent erosion, and resist drought.
 

Native/Adapted

Native/Adapted
Well suited for the growing conditions, either because they exist in the region naturally (native) or because they can thrive in the natural conditions without threatening native species (adapted).
 

Cacti/Succulents

Cacti/Succulents
Drought-resistant plants that store water in their leaves and stems. Their tough skin or spines provide natural protection from most pests and predators and they are almost maintenance free!
