Project Manager: Heidi Douglass, President, The Organic Mom Inc., Dighton, MA
Partners: Safer Works/Safer for Your Baby, Berkley School Committee, Berkley Public School System, Fresh Idea Organic Land Care, Plympton, MA.

The Organic Mom hosted two free environmental lectures at the local school to raise public awareness of toxics inside and outside of the home. Topic ideas included health effects of toxics on child development, identifying toxins within the home, finding safer products and methods, and how to have a lush green lawn without pesticides. The lectures were promoted through local cable shows, press releases, and flyers sent home with school children and posted at public locations. Guest lecturers were Dr. Laura Costa and Dr. Lynn Ruggeri, Safer Works/Safer for Your Baby, and Rebecca Lipton, NOFA Certified Organic Lawn Care Specialist & President of "Fresh Idea Organic Land Care Management".
