Pest-fighting bugs and plants in urban gardens

UNIBUG is a program at Douglas College that currently has a network of more than 40 volunteers monitoring bugs in their gardens.The project is looking at pesticide-free, sustainable ways to get rid of pests in urban gardens. A public event at Douglas College on Saturday morning hopes to draw more community support for the project. Rob McGregor is the program's director at the Institute of Urban Ecology and he'll be in studio to tell us more, just after 7:30 a.m.
