Join the Chemical Free Land Care Group

I know we are all busy busy busy but when you lose your health, when the few soldiers at the front line retreat you will be thrown back into being aerial sprayed.

If one really counts the cost, hours of pain and sickness for residents, enormous biodiversity loss, bees, frogs, fish destroyed or injured it is clear that the pesticide path is very, very, very expensive.
