A Chemical Reaction: Two Maine Shows in the Next Two Days


SOUTH PORTLAND, MAINE — After visits to 25 states and four Canadian provinces in the past three months, the award-winning environmental and health film A Chemical Reaction and its producers will spend Easter week in their home state of Maine.

Two shows are planned, beginning Wednesday evening at 7 at Jewett Auditorium on the campus of Southern Maine Community College. That will be followed by another 7 p.m. show at the Performing Arts Center at Yarmouth High School.

In Yarmouth, the sponsors will be The Environmental Health Strategy Center and
Citizens for a Green Yarmouth; admission is by donation. The Friends of Casco Bay are co-sponsoring the SMCC event, which is a fundraiser for the college’s horticultural students.

Director Brett Plymale and Executive Producer Paul Tukey are expected to attend both events, which will feature question-and-answer sessions immediately following the 70-minute film. Copies of the film and Paul Tukey’s book, The Organic Lawn Care Manual, will be for sale.

The organic lawn care company, Casco Bay SafeLawns, is also expected to be on hand in South Portland.

    And an April 1st screening in Middletown CT, at the High School 7PM as well!

    No fooling!

    Hi Paul,

    Just got in from the Yarmouth screening, great job on the film! My experience in the field has shown me that we have a long way to go in changing many people’s expectations. I work for some high end customers that believe firmly in the safety aspect, however, they cannot give up that weed free expanse of turf. That is probably my biggest frustration with customers to date. Keep working the grassroots(pun intended) and it’ll get done!

    Thanks again, and would love to help out in any way I can.
