CT - New Haven County (SW) Chapter

Event: Freedom Lawn: Let Nature Do the Job

March 20, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

On March 20 at 6:30 p.m., Holistic Moms Network’s New Haven County chapter will host a presentation focused on how to have a beautiful yard without toxic chemicals and a brief talk on pesticide side effects. Some of the topics to be covered include composting; the advantages of organic land care for the yard, garden and children; testing soil samples; and more. The monthly meeting takes place in Milford, Connecticut.

A local pioneer rooting for the health of the environment, Ann H. Bermanin was born Canada in 1934. In her 10 years as chair of Milford’s Environmental Concerns Coalition, the organization educated the mayor and the city about the environment, worked on state bills for the pesticide use ban on K8 school yards, and ran Contest for Freedom Lawn with the help of Dr. Laurel Lobovits. “There is so much to be done to save our environment for the next generations,” says Bermanin.

It welcomes people wherever they are on their own holistic path in an environment that does not judge.

Living healthy and living green is not an endpoint, but an ongoing journey.
