Organization: Pesticide Free Marin by 2016
City/Country: Marin County, USA


Barbara Bogard

Pesticide Free Marin by 2016 is a citizen led initiative to save our watershed and public places from toxic chemical application. We saw enough evidence of carcinogenic risk on land and known hazards of these substances in drinking water supplies to initiate a citizen’s movement. Marin County has the environmental experience, economic base, and love of open space to ban chemical pesticides and guarantee our children healthy natural resources for their future. We are moving forward by educating our local community and working with schools. We request you sign our petition and hope you support us at the next Board of Supervisors meeting. Sustainable land management is grass roots work.
