Think Before You Spray! Alternatives to Toxic Pesticides

Join us on Thursday, August 24 at 7 p.m. when members of the Think Before You Spray coalition discuss the overuse of weedkillers in Marin gardens. The event is free, but you must RSVP.

The presentation will address:

• Why pesticides are harmful

• Alternative methods to weed control

• How to identify your weeds

• How to stop the invaders.

Then, dig deeper with an expert: a professional local farmer will discuss organic weed and pest control, and answer your questions.

The Think Before You Spray campaign is a collaborative, community-driven project in Marin County to raise awareness among Marin residents about alternatives to the use of toxic landscape products—around people’s homes and businesses—and to reduce the overall use of pesticides.
