Ground War

In Ground War, a filmmaker’s investigation into the death of his father takes him deep into the world of golf, chemical lobbying, and citizen activism, where he learns that the increasing use of pesticides around the world may be far more damaging than he thought. What chance do we have at creating a safer world for ourselves and our children’s future lives?

A discussion will follow the film and will be led by those who are active in the field of environmental land care policy development. Julie Taddeo, a leading architect of the Safegrow Takoma program and Luisa Robles, Sustainability Coordinator for the City of Greenbelt and Staff Liaison to Green ACES will provide a better understanding of current policies in place in these communities, and they will also facilitate discussion about organic landcare (OPM) and integrated pest management (IPM) strategies.
