 Controlling Deer in My Garden by Joe Lamp'l

 "Can Milorganite Repel Deer From Food Plots? From these results, we concluded that Milorganite is an effective temporary deer repellent for use in food plots." by Odin Stephens.

“If deer like to eat your plants, Rick Vuyst from Flowerland says try setting out a bag of Milorganite. It is a deer deterrent. Cut a slit down the middle of the bag and leave it there over the winter. In spring, spread it around your hostas and that will keep the deer away and act as a natural fertilizer."

Organic Articles:

To be a truly "green" gardener, look beyond the label. Some ingredients that claim to be "natural" or "eco-friendly" are anything but. "Greenwashing in the garden" by Jeff Gillman 

"Organic-Based' Products Are Rarely Organic" by Paul Tukey "Biosolids — derived from human waste — have been the basis of Milorganite fertilizer for decades. This popular brand from the Milwaukee sewage treatment plant is used on lawns across America and many consider the product to be organic, although it would never clear OMRI or the NOP standards.  Having since personally visited the Milorganite plant, I now believe that company does as good a job as possible testing its product to make sure it is as free, as possible, from contaminants. I would now use Milorganite on my own lawn. I cannot say that, however, for all bio-solids products because I do not believe all companies and plants adhere to the strict Milorganite testing regimen."
