Maryland Coalition Looks to End Lawn Care Pesticide Use in Public Areas

Safe Grow Montgomery—a coalition looking to advance legislation to protect against exposure to lawn care pesticides in public spaces throughout Montgomery County, MD—is now looking to meet with county council members who share this point of view.

Safe Grow Montgomery includes the coalition that brought the Safe Grow Act of 2013 to Takoma Park, MD, which generally restricts the use of cosmetic lawn pesticides on both private and public property throughout the Maryland city.

Safe Grow Montgomery is also encouraging Montgomery County residents and environmentalists to call and write their representatives about the importance of this legislation.
