how can I get rid of catterpillers from my cabbage plants without the use of chemicals



You pick the caterpillars off by hand and stomp on them. Easy! Wear gloves if you don't fancy handling them. Anyone with chickens could feed the caterpillars to them.

Next year grow your cabbages under small mesh netting which will keep the butterflies off. No butterflies, no caterpillars!
