4/5/14 An Open Letter to the Community: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful,…
Thanks all 120 of you (we counted) for coming out to our demonstration for organic turf management at Florence Fields, and for the many more of you for voicing your opinion to our elected officials in Northampton. NO Roundup! YES healthy, organic Florence Fields!
Amazingly, one of our supporters already created this excellent 2-minute video of the event. Please share it FAR and WIDE!
At the event, I thanked our elected officials for being responsive to citizens’ concerns, and taking the time to learn about the risks of Roundup, and safer, effective alternatives. Special shout out to Mayor David Narkewicz for deciding to halt the spraying, and for Councilor Marianne LaBarge for attending and supporting the rally.
Next steps: Stay tuned as we prepare to circulate an online petition.
