LET’S WORK TO BAN GLYPHOSATE & SYNTHETIC PESTICIDES NOW!
HEALTHY SONOMA COUNTY AGENDA 21/31
We the people of Sonoma County direct the duly appointed agricultural commissioner of our county to forbid the use of Glyphosate(a weed killer found under trade names such as Roundup, etc) within our county effective immediately as of passage of this measure; furthermore, we direct the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors and its officers to develop protocols resulting in all countywide agricultural activities utilizing herbicides, pesticides and fungicides of any type to be conforming to the parameters established under the USDA National Organic Program by the year 2031 in an annually progressive manner with the first year’s quota(2021) being the ban on Glyphosate.

Where are the butterflies?
Why are the bees sick?
What is happened to the land where we live?
Those tadpoles becoming frogs?
How is your health,
Primed with the songs, smells and sights of nature
We have used more than 1 million pounds of glyphosate here in our county in the last 10 years and many other agricultural toxins. Let’s learn to do without.
Perhaps the doves of the meadows will bless us with their songs of peaceful contentment.
- Once again, Bob Cannard

THE VISION OF A CLEAN FUTURE
The widespread use of synthetic pesticides is contributing to a public and environmental health crisis. The EPA cannot prove these formulations of pesticides are safe, and the laws in place do not adequately protect us. The long-term effects of these toxic substances have yet to be fully realized, as no laboratory study can truly mirror the interconnectedness of nature. The chemicals accumulate and persist in the environment, threatening the health of all who call Sonoma County home, including the birds, bees, butterflies, fish, amphibians, pets, and the diverse ecosystems that make this area so special. We should channel our energy to regenerate this sacred land rather than blatantly pollute it. There are effective, organic solutions available, and it’s time we started using them.
