Looking for an organic treatment along with the cultural treatments I've read about for treating garden fungus. Seems we experience this yearly. Additionally how often to treat, how much to treat with etc. Thank you.

I'm not sure what you mean by 'garden fungus' - whether it means a specific one or all of them in general. Organic sprays for disease control in the organic garden are rather limited. The most common fungicides contain sulfur, lime-sulfur, copper, horticultural oil, neem oil, or bicarbonates. Which one is used depends on the specific crop and the specific disease needing to be controlled.
