in those exposed to pesticides. We should never be using these hazardous chemicals were developing brains and bodies learn and play.


An EcoFriend had an ant problem recently. Her room mate was ready to call the Terminix company (one of the worst enviro offenders). She asked me if I knew of a natural remedy. There are many and the best one is keep your kitchen clean and limit food eating to only the kitchen. If you find yourself at a store in the toxic chemical isle contemplating the easy route out of whatever is “pesting” your home or yard…check this website out first. I typed in DICAMBA the main ingredient in ChemLawns/TruGreens toxic lawn cocktail. This is a huge list of diseases and disorders linked with just this one toxic chemical. Yikes!

Come over and play tomorrow morning and maybe see you or your child’s mug in the Minneapolis Star Tribine newspaper in a few weeks. Last night Mary Jane Smetanka joined our EcoMoms discussion of Louv’s book. We sort of started off there and jumped to broader topics like how to bring in nature to our every day lives, schools, and community.

Come on over for playdate at 9:45 and stay as long as you wish. juliemcjones@gmail.com for directions
