Township Environmental Commission to Show Earth Day Film
Interested in a safe lawn?
With Earth Day just around the corner, don't miss Chatham Township Environmental Commission's timely and unique film screening about safe, organic lawns. Show times are Thursday April 15th at 7:30 p.m. and Monday April 19th at 10:30 a.m. Both showings are at The Library of The Chathams.
The film is "A Chemical Reaction," a new documentary not yet released on DVD, that tells the story of one of the most powerful and effective community initiatives in the history of North America. One lone voice in 1984, Dr. June Irwin, a dermatologist, noticed a connection between her patients' health conditions and their exposure to chemical insecticides and herbicides. The film follows her relentless persistence as the pesticide issue moved from local town, to Supreme Court.
This documentary also follows Paul Tukey on his journey through his own illness from lawncare products to becoming a leading expert on organic lawn care and an advocate for organic lawn care. It's an inspiring story of overcoming great odds and demonstrates the power of people coming together to effect great change for the sake of public health.
Tom, Mike and Debbie Bucuk of GreenPath Landcare of Chatham Township will be on hand after the film to answer your questions and share their expertise on how to grow a lawn organically so that is safe for you, your children and pets.
Free admission. Film licensing fees sponsored by GreenPath Landcare.
