ACRE and Chelsea's pesticide bylaw
6.0 COMMUNITY ACTIVITY
Prior to the adoption of the by-law, ACRE organized an educational campaign on the health risks associated with the use of chemical pesticides, and on alternatives to these products. After the by-law was passed, ACRE has continued its educational programme in collaboration with the municipality. Information has been made available to residents through the municipal library (books, pamphlets and other printed material), by way of mail-outs, telephone information, workshops and information kiosks at local events and at the town hall. Information and assistance has also been provided with respect to organic gardening methods and suggestions for organic methods of controlling garden pests.
