Event Description

Sponsored by the Rocky River Watershed Council

 

WHAT: Beyond Pesticides Ohio will present a free comprehensive training session on why and how to implement an affordable organic turf care program for your home or business. Each session will be control, organic fertilizing, aerating and over-seeding.

 

Workshop is geared towards residents

 

WHY: You can protect people's health and the environment and also save money by transitioning to organic turf practices. The reasons are clear: pesticide exposure is dangerous to people, animals and the ecosystem. Many commonly used pesticides have been associated with elevated risks for acquiring asthma, childhood leukemia, learning disabilities and Parkinson’s disease.
