NEXT MEETING – JUNE 11, 2019 – “SILENT SPRING IN BENICIA?
“Silent Spring in Benicia?” Let’s talk about herbicides and pesticides.
We will have brief reports by a representative from the City of Benicia and a representative from Benicia Unified School District, and we hope to have someone from Solano County. Bring your concerns and questions!
Expert speakers will include:
- Kat Furey of the California Guild, Proposition 65 (CA Safe Water and Toxic Enforcement, 1986) – what we know about glyphosate, etc.
- Mackenzie Feldman, UC-Berkeley activist who worked to gain a UC system-wide ban on use of glyphosate herbicides – UC Global Initiative, Berkeley Food Institute, etc.
We will also hear from Sustainable Solano about alternatives to glyphosate products.
Hope to see you there!
