Saturday, October 1, 2 p.m. ET  That is 12 noon here in Saskatchewan 
(Please note this webinar is on Saturday, not Sunday.)

Municipal grass and weeds bylaws across the country are often so vaguely written and arbitrarily enforced that they can be used to discourage and/or destroy habitat gardens. In this webinar, native plant advocate and author Lorraine Johnson will outline the problems and contradictions contained in many such bylaws, discuss the legal precedents that protect habitat gardens, and offer advice for proactively working with municipalities on bylaw reform.

National Forum Series: Seminar 1—Health (Beyond Pesticides)

September 15 | 1:00-2:30 pm     BIODIVERSITY > Oct 12   |   CLIMATE > Nov TBA

REGISTER NOW—Donations Are Requested, But Not Required 

As we face health, biodiversity, and climate crises, drastic change has never been more urgent. The purpose of this revealing and engaging Forum series is to work together to chart a path for a livable and sustainable future. This seminar focusing on health is the first in a series of three this fall. Details for October and November seminars on biodiversity and climate, respectively, will be announced soon. On September 15, we will address:

THE PROBLEM: The dire health implications of the current dependency on pesticides and toxic chemicals and the failure of the regulatory system to fully evaluate and control for the range of adverse effects and complexity of their interactions. Speaker: Claudia Miller, M.D., professor emerita at the University of Texas San Antonio. 

THE SOLUTION: The solution is found in a transition to management practices that are no longer dependent on toxic inputs and respect the value of nature and works in partnership with the diversity that it offers. Speaker: Kaipo Kekona, manager of a 12.5 acre-farm site for the Ku'ia Agricultural Education Center in the ahupua'a of Ku'ia on Legacy Lands of Keli'i Kulani (Hawai'i).

Science for the People: Launching Pesticide Info!

We’re so excited to share that a newly updated, more intuitive, and easier-to-use pesticide information database is now available to the public, accessible at pesticideinfo.org.

At its core, Pesticide Info is a tool that combines publicly available data to create an interactive, searchable database of every chemical and product related to pesticide use and application. With Pesticide Info, you can look up information like the latest cancer ratings of widely used pesticides such as atrazine and glyphosate, or whether the brain-harming insecticide chlorpyrifos is also harmful to pollinators in your community (it is!).

Join author and activist Sandra Steingraber and the Pesticide Info team over at Pesticide Action Network on Tuesday, March 23rd, at 11am PT (2PM ET) for a launch event, including a walkthrough of the tool, campaign examples, and ample time to ask organizers and scientists your pesticide-related questions.
