If you have the space, a small habitat pond is a great addition to an organic vegetable garden! It supports a lot of the 'friendly' wildlife (lizards, toads, birds, wasps, native bees, etc.) that helps keep the 'unfriendlies' away!

Here is a link to slides explaining how to install a no electricity, no plumbing, no filtration habitat pond. Mosquito free and very low maintenance!

The only real maintenance is to rake out excess plants and organic matter ~ once a year. This 'waste' makes excellent mulch or compost.

Everyone benefits!
