Family and friends, please join us for an afternoon picnic in the park!  Bring a blanket, brown bag lunch and enjoy playing lawn games from around the world. Get to know green businesses in your area and leave with some free goodies, including a chance to win a raffle basket.   
 
We also welcome Safelawns founder, Paul Tukey and advocate Victoria Rowell, who will speak about getting this generation off the couch and reconnecting with the outside playground for a life of fun and good health. Additionally, Bernadette Giblin, local organic turf consultant, will be on hand providing a DIY demonstration on how homeowners can create their own Safeground 100% pesticide free lawn. Dennis Caraher, local children's performer, will provide entertainment for the afternoon.
 
This event is run on behalf of the Pioneer Valley Planning Commission in their efforts of increasing awareness and education about how to reduce pesticide use and prevent local contamination of local waters.
