April Green Tip

If you are a homeowner it’s time to start thinking about yard and garden. Consider this: cutting-edge science links pesticide exposure to health problems, honey-bee-colony collapse, ground-water contamination, and other environmental issues. If you haven’t already done so, it’s time to go organic. And you don’t have to wing it; there’s plenty of help on the web site of CT Northeast Farming Association. There is an Organic Landscapers “Homeowners Booklet” and everything you need to know to go organic. Or, if you prefer to hire a landscaper, you can also find a list of organically-trained lawn-care professionals on the site. Here’s the link: http://www.organiclandcare.net/ .

And a post-script from the Feb. Green Tip: If you are concerned – as you should be – about GMOs in our food supply, here is a helpful application for your iphone, blackberry, etc.: ShopNoGMO.com. It’s a free AP and will help you in making healthy choices.
