Project Title:
Garden Green Pesticide Reduction
Puget Sound Stewardship and Mitigation Fund, 2018
Project Description:

Garden Green is a community effort to reduce toxic pesticide sales and use on Vashon-Maury Island and Puget Sound. It involves education and lobbying of retail management, plus education of the public, community groups, and government agencies. The work ties closely to recommendations in the Vashon-Maury Island Watershed Plan, and is designed to maintain/improve island surface water, groundwater, and the waters of Puget Sound. Our actions help protect families, pets, birds, pollinators and other wildlife: everything from the tiny aquatic insects eaten by young salmon, to the orca whales that live primarily on Chinook salmon.
