How do I keep pests out of my new garden without using pesticides?

I am planning on another new raised garden (I just move a week ago) with herbs, tomatoes, lettuce, squash and zucchini. The last few years I used pesticide to keep worms and pests away but the lingering odor from it turned us off from eating the vegetables. I want a flourishing garden but not the pesticides. How do I accomplish this?

    You defiantly want worms! You can buy lady bugs they ear a lot of pests without them eating your veggies...

      I tried to reply after you answered, but it didn't go through. I did not means worms, I meant slugs. I get a lot of slugs.
