Once again I am on a rampage against pesticides. My son, Brent, is working on a sustainable farm in Costa Rica for the semester. There he met another student, Lauren, who recently helped to film a documentary, with a $10,000 Projects for Peace grant, to help expose the plight of the banana workers in Nicaragua. The story is all at once appalling, enlightening, absorbing, saddening and left me feeling helpless, yet more inspired than ever to avoid pesticides.
I met with the organic pest control representative today and signed up. More on that later. Check out this 2-part documentary video. Grab a box of tissues first. Comments?
Thanks to Lauren for bringing this to my attention through Brent. I am very proud of you Lauren!
