Our Purpose

For years the City of Portsmouth, NH has been treating their brick sidewalks, parks, ball fields, and cemeteries with glyphosate (Dow's Rodeo product), along with other known carcinogens such as bifenthrin and dithiopyr. We want them to stop and to use proven organic and natural approaches to maintain our public open space. You don't have to go far for the proof. Prescott Park in Portsmouth has for over 50 years of operation never used herbicides or pesticides.
