During lockdown I have been doing a lot more work in the garden but I am always worried about hurting insects when clearing weeds. Are there any ways that you use to prevent hurting insects? Or any vegan gardening tips in general? Thanks πŸ’š

Vegetarian for five years. Quite enjoy it. I feel like it's the responsible thing to do, considering the inhumane handling of animals for human consumption.

There’s natural repellents you can use. Or if you are up for it, grow all your veggies 100% indoors (controlled environment). My biggest thing has been using only vegan soil and fertilizers.

A really good natural bug repellent is neem oil. You can also plant certain plants, such as lavender, lemon balm, cat nip.. etc... to naturally deter bugs :)

Organizing your garden can help keep certain pests away from neighbor plants. I would just google "companion plant for _____" and then lay out your garden with those in mind! Also if you plant some flowers/plants that attract lady bugs and praying mantises (manti?) they like to eat the other buggos that may hurt your plants.
So far in my garden (1st year, raised bed, 8 by 4) I haven't gotten any pests, only had a few baby rabbits that had a nice snack on my broccoli, kale, and cauliflower. I added a mesh in addition to my fence to help keep the smaller critters out. I've heard marigolds will help deter these animals away as well, but I have not planted any yet.

Best of luck!
