Environmental Lecture Series - What's So Bad About Pesticides?

Wednesday, October 16, 2019

Everyone would agree that is would not be a good idea to put pesticides in a saltshaker and add them to our food at the table. But there is little agreement when it comes to their use in agriculture. How much gets into our food? What are the effects on our health? On the environment? Is there a safer alternative? The answers to those and other questions will be provided at the lecture. Guest speaker is Dr. German Cutz, UConn Associate Extension Educator. Sponsored by the Greenwich Botanical Center
