I have little green worms eating my broccoli. Is there anything I can do to stop them that doesn't involve chemicals? I am trying to grow a chemical free organic garden.

You can hand pick the worms or you can apply the botanical Bt (Dipel or Thuricide). Bt is a bacterium that acts as a stomach poison, targeting only caterpillars. It's safe to use on broccoli.
