Northeastern University Offers Free Boston Screening

This NOTICE was circulated Friday by Northeastern University, which is hosting a public screening of A Chemical Reaction in Boston on Feb. 22. Tickets are free, but you must register to reserve a seat.

Please be our guest on February 22 for the screening of “A Chemical Reaction”, an inspiring documentary movie about one of the most powerful and effective community initiatives against chemical pesticides and herbicides in the history of North America.

Started by one lone voice, dermatologist June Irwin noticed a connection between her patients’ health conditions and their exposure to chemical pesticides and herbicides. “A Chemical Reaction” follows her journey of relentless persistence from warning fellow citizens in her small town to an ultimate victory in the Canadian Supreme Court.

Immediately after the movie screening we will host a Q&A Session with Paul Tukey, who has followed this story closely over several years. After becoming seriously ill with acute pesticide sensitivity from applying chemical lawn products in his own lawn care business, he became an outspoken advocate for alternatives to chemical lawn care and one of the nation’s leading experts on organic lawn care.

Date: February 22, 2010

Time: 7:00 – 8:40 p.m. Q&A with Paul Tukey immediately following

Place: West Village F20, Northeastern University, 360 Huntington Avenue Boston, MA
