I facilitated several official city of Denver Sustainability Task Force meetings this past year and wanted to continue to contribute my activism while many of their programs are on hold or have insufficient funding to continue to progress concerning Environmental topics.
Therefore, I have dedicated myself to an International Climate Action Challenge which begins in September and runs for 90 days. My goal is to provide thorough information about how residents can care for their property without toxic chemicals and to advocate to the Denver Department of Park and Recreation to make their Intergrated Pest Management Program more progressive. I want everyone living here to be confident in their health and safety and not need to worry about toxic runoff into waterways or needing to wonder whether their park was recently treated with toxic chemicals or synthetic fertilizers before going there.
My idea is to share practices for designing and maintaining Ecologically Beneficial Landscapes that surround us in our daily lives. Providing resources that can aid others in developing an Organic Land Care approach. To have a dialogue around the following:
- ~ Defining Organic Landcare
- ~ Preferred, allowed and prohibited products
- ~ Precautionary Principles
- ~ Right Plant – right location (Plant Select)
