This mother of three got fed up and took charge. Sofía Gatica challenged powerful corporate interests to protect her family and community from pesticides — and won. Today, the Argentine mother is one of six grassroots leaders from around the world being honored with the Goldman Environmental Prize. Please watch the video of her story and share.

Please watch this video...., and consider how your use of pesticides/ herbicides, and consumption of chemically produced foods is harming thousands, possibly your grandchildren.

And if you are looking for alternatives to the chemical, petroleum, water dependent lawn, just Google Images for "lawn alternatives", or click on this site http://www.lawnreform.org/
