Go Pesticide-Free

Today, I attended the first Scottish-wide pesticide free workshop for towns and cities to hear about the work of Pesticide Action Network UK. Information was provided about the human health effects of pesticides and examples from Edinburgh, Ghent (Belgium) and across France were shared to highlighted the process of communities becoming pesticide free.

There is a new toolkit available for local authorities to help to develop pesticide reduction programmes. This will be discussed further with council officials, other councillors and residents in the next few months.
