Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Save money by forgoing spray of poisons on lawns
Kennebec Journal - 5/17/2009.
Letter to the editor by Nancy Peavey – In this serious budget crunch, our state and city governments are cutting back important services. Leaders should be looking for all unnecessary spending that can be eliminated. Spending our tax dollars on chemical herbicide and pesticide spraying of government property needs to stop.
The good, the bad, and the deadly of plants

Common Dreams - 5/16/2009.
