Watsonville Teachers and Students Take on Methyl Iodide
David Bacon (via Z Magazine)
Teachers at Watsonville’s Ohlone Elementary School were more than relieved when Arysta Life Science, a giant Japanese chemical company, announced on March 20 that it would no longer sell methyl iodide in the U.S. for use as a pesticide. The school on the edge of Watsonville, is separated from agricultural fields by a 30-foot-wide road. Over the last decade, growers have planted strawberries, artichokes, and brussel sprouts in the long rows that snake over the hillside, ending a stonesthrow from the playground where children play.
