We're so glad you're here and want to join us in our fight to eliminate synthetic pesticides from landcare. Here are a few ways you can get involved:

Check in on your alma mater: 

Did you attend an institution of higher education? If so, you, as an alumni, have critical leveraging power to push your alma mater to eliminate the use of highly toxic, synthetic pesticides. It is crucial that you use your voice and position of influence to help us call on school’s you’ve attended to prioritize human and environmental health. 

How to help: 

  • Identify key stakeholders at your school. This can range from the school president to director of sustainability to someone who works in facilities management.

  • Send them an email. You can use this email template or craft your own message. 

Check in on your kids schools:

Do you have kids in school? If so, they are likely being exposed to highly toxic pesticides. While we work with students to empower them in their advocacy against the use of pesticides, parents also play an integral role in steering schools towards more environmentally friendly practices.

You can use this email template or call your child’s schools administrators and inquiring about the use of pesticides, voicing your concerns, and directing them to us. We are ready to help the school implement alternatives to create a healthier, safer campus for your child.

Attend our Ground Up Advocacy Bootcamp

Our Ground Up Advocacy Bootcamp is a cutting-edge training intentionally built for emerging community leaders. This two-day program emphasizes coalition building, multimedia training, campaign strategy, and volunteer recruitment in addition to herbicide-specific education. The Bootcamp takes a look at pesticides and their impacts on human and environmental health, all while providing participants with the advocacy and organizing skills to enact change in their communities. Participants walk away with a deeper understanding of toxic chemicals, what it means to rewild spaces, the intersection of human and environmental health, and how these issues tie back to social justice and climate change. Bootcamps take place biannually in the summer and winter. Fill out our interest form to stay up to date on our next Bootcamp!
