CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) — There has been a growing movement toward protecting pollinators, and one way to help do that would be to reduce the use of chemicals in home landscaping.
The Piedmont Master Gardeners will be hosting an event on why and how people can reduce chemical use in their yards later this month.
The discussion will include an explanation of why it is important to reduce the use of chemicals as well the basic issues with commonly-used insecticides, herbicides and synthetic fertilizers.
Experts will explain how people can use a process called Integrated Pest Management instead of chemicals as well as how to change ideas in order to build healthier ecologies.
This is a free presentation, which will take place Nov. 19 at Trinity Episcopal Church in Charlottesville.
