“A Safer Choice: Managing Landscapes and Homes without Toxic Chemicals”

The Chevy Chase Village Environment and Energy Committee will host a presentation by Jay Feldman, Executive Director of “Beyond Pesticides,” on how to reduce the use of harmful pesticides in our lawn care, household cleaning agents and in the food we eat.  The speaker will provide an overview of the importance of an environmentally sensitive approach to the management of parks, lawns, and homes including management practices and products.  With fall landscaping and turf preparation in mind, a focus of the talk will be on the hazards of pesticides and successful, alternative approaches to beautiful landscapes with organic land management practices. 

Jay Feldman is the director of Beyond Pesticides, a national environmental organization founded in 1981, which brings together gardeners, farmers, and consumers to protect health and the environment with science, policy, and action. The presentation is part of the Environment and Energy Committee’s Lecture Series on Sustainable Living, and is jointly sponsored by the Community Relations Committee and the Parks and Greenspaces Committee.

Doors open at 7 p.m. for coffee and refreshments, and a chance to meet the speaker.
