A Chemical Reaction to Screen in Madison Thursday Evening
WISCONSIN — To live sustainably, you may bike to work or buy local organic food, but have you considered how you can go green, quite literally, in your own backyard? You can support environmental and public health by caring for your lawn and garden in a sustainable way.
Talk about how by enjoying a FREE screening of “A Chemical Reaction: The Story of a True Green Revolution (www.chemicalreactionmovie.com),” Producer Paul Tukey will be on hand at Promega Corporation, 2800 Woods Hollow Rd, Fitchburg, to introduce and talk about his award-winning documentary about the town of Hudson, Quebec, the first town in North America to ban synthetic lawn and garden weed and insect killers. An acclaimed author and speaker, Tukey is the founder of the SafeLawns Foundation and author of “The Organic Lawn Care Manual” and his new book, “Tag, Toss & Run: 40 Classic Lawn Games.”
The film tells the story about the perseverance and power of a community. Local experts will be on hand to talk about the issues presented in the film, from natural landscaping to effective community action.
TThe event is sponsored by EnAct, Purple Cow Organics, and Healthy Lawn Team, and Willy St. Co-op. For more information, contact: kayla.baake (at) madisonevironmental.com.
