The group at Sustainable Peachtree Corners has set a goal to sign up 1,000 residents, schools, churches, businesses (basically anyone who has a lawn or garden!) to commit to going pesticide-free in 2009, and hopefully beyond!

The Pesticide-Free Pledge:
"To the best of my ability I pledge to keep my home, yard and garden free of pesticides (this includes fungicides, herbicides, insecticides and other petrochemical agents that can cause cancer, reproductive harm, genetic damage, endocrine disruption and breathing difficulties).
Whenever pest control is needed I will consult with my local organic nursery or call a knowledgeable agent such as the Georgia Extension Office at the University of Georgia. I will further attempt, when asked, to educate others regarding my reasons for using organic control methods."
