Sustainable Wellesley’s 2018 Documentary Series

Before you throw chemicals down on your lawn this spring, check out the latest film in the series…

A Chemical Reaction: The Story of a True Green Revolution

Wednesday, May 16, 2018, 7:00 PM

Wellesley Free Library, 530 Washington Street, Wellesley

Join the Natural Resources Commission, Wellesley Health Department and Sustainable Wellesley for a screening and discussion of this 2009 film – a powerful story of a Canadian community that decided to ban lawn chemicals after a local dermatologist noticed a connection between her patients’ health and their exposure to pesticides and herbicides, and the tremendous legal battle waged by the big chemical industry. Popcorn and drinks will be provided. The evening is free and open to the public.

This event commemorates Rachel Carson Day so come enjoy some birthday cake with us as well!
