We are continuing to focus on slowing/stopping/improving the conversion until we know our children will not be put in harms way, by requesting comprehensive soil tests on the land. We are convinced there needs to be 3rd party soil tests and then there needs to be an agreement that the vineyard will go certified organic, so we know there is no spray and chemical fertilizers used.
We are also continuing our work on the school Protective/Buffer zones. This will require Community organizing, networking with other Sonoma County schools, working with the local government agencies and officials to create a permanent change to the legislation that will protect all school children and sensitive populations from exposure to Agricultural chemicals. Just as there is a reduced speed limit, a no drug zone, a no tobacco use zone, a no sex offender zone surrounding all schools in California…the time has come for a no Spray zone! It is TIME for this to be addressed.
Thank you to Barry from WaccoBB for this great video and quick edit
As of this posting, no other local news outlets have mentioned such a news worthy Public Forum, we sincerely hope that changes too!
