RSVP on Facebook
The Kane County Democratic Women (KCDW) will host a forum on “The Environmental Drift!” on Thursday, July 27, 2023, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Kane County Government Center, Building A, 719 S. Batavia Ave., Geneva, IL.
The purpose of the forum is to bring the community together to create awareness of herbicides and lawn applications that are sprayed in the environment and signs that these chemicals are drifting into other areas and affecting vegetable gardens, trees, and native plants and possibly our health. The presentation will include PowerPoint slides that show the effects of herbicides, and attendees will learn about the broken regulatory system and ways community members can advocate for change. Several weeks later, a tour of the speaker’s property is available to see firsthand the effects of chemical drift on keystone oak trees that are 100 to 200 years old. Our forum speakers include:
- Sue Styer: Sue grew up in a family of gardeners. She is a retired science teacher who teaches local community classes on gardening and composting as a volunteer. Sue grows vegetables and native plants and does natural areas restoration.
- Patti Hirsch: Patti grew up on a family dairy farm that also raised vegetables. Patti volunteers at a local community garden where she teaches people how to grow their own food and how to compost, while helping them to reconnect with nature through natural areas restoration activities.
The forum is free and open to the public. Questions regarding the Women & Power Speaker Series or the Kane County Democratic Women can be sent to KCDW Chair, Carolyn Bird Salazar at email@example.com
ABOUT THE KANE COUNTY DEMOCRATIC WOMEN: The mission of the KCDW is to harness the political power of Democratic women to create positive social change through engagement, education, and empowerment.
