Thu, Apr 10, 7-9PM Alternatives to the Aerial Spray Program: Supporting Local Food and Farms
Ecology Center 2530 San Pablo Ave Berkeley (@ Dwight, NEAR GOOD VIBRATIONS http://GOODVIBES.COM )
East Bay Pesticide Alert and Don\'t Spray California present a forum on the Light Brown Apple Moth. Will the light brown apple moth prove to be the invasive threat to California agriculture that the USDA claims it to be, or have agricultural damages been grossly exaggerated? What will happen to local organics if the California Department of Food and Agriculture is allowed to follow through on their proposal to douse the Bay Area with pesticides month in and month out for years to come? Should the vulnerabilities created by conventional agricultural practices be an excuse for eradication projects that put public and environmental health at risk?
Come hear about alternative approaches from:
• Agroecologist and UC Berkeley professor Miguel Altier
• Mayor of Albany and registered nurse Robert Lieber
• Farmers Robert Shultz and Ames Morison, and healthcare worker John Davis.
Find out about the spray plan, alternatives to it, and ways you can get involved!
