Pesticides are chemical substances used to kill insects and prevent them from destroying cultivated plants. People apply pesticides to their lawns, gardens and trees, and farmers spray pesticides on their crops. The problem with this is that these chemicals end up causing harm to the surrounding environment. Pesticide residues find their way into our air, our food, our water, and our parks and school grounds. Join us as guests Emily Koo and Lee Ann Freitas share their expertise and their educational initiative, known as Pesticide Free PVD.
