Jeremiah Duncan Discusses the use of Pesticides in Lawn Care

June 16th, 2010 by Bridget

On February 10, Jeremiah Duncan served as an invited member of a panel to discuss the use of pesticides in lawn care.  The panel discussion was part of an event sponsored by Common Ground (Plymouth State University’s environmental and social justice student organization) and The Leah Collective (a local environmental activist group concerned with the use of lawn pesticides and herbicides in New Hampshire), which included a showing of the film A Chemical Reaction.  The event was held the night before, and in preparation for, a hearing in the New Hampshire House of Representatives on HB1456, which would establish a state committee to study herbicides and pesticides and their alternatives in residential areas.
