Ventura County uses the most pesticides per square mile of any other County in California This is very disturbing, knowing that we have the tools and resources in place to curb the insane amounts of pesticides being applied.
We’ll be discussing some ways to make reform happen with people power!
We will be kicking off our meeting with a presentation by Lideres Campesinas!
Followed by a discussion of:
*The harms toxic pesticides have on our environment and community
**Utilizing alternatives to transition away from toxic chemicals
***How we can communicate our demands and move our elected officials
Organized by Adam Vega
Adam joins us as part of a year-long residential internship program hosted by The Abundant Table. He’ll work with Central Coast Alliance United for a Sustainable Economy (CAUSE) as part of their local organizing efforts in Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties.

Important disclaimers: This calendar is currently maintained by only a few individuals, and the events listed are generally based on what we have been able to gather off the internet. It is strongly recommended that you contact the individual organizations to confirm that details of their events (date, time, location, etc.) are correct before attending.
We make every effort to update the calendar weekly, but given our time constraints, this doesn’t always happen. If you want to help out in any way, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
