Use of Round-Up/Glyphosate in our Parks, Reserves and on the Road Verges
Many of you will have organic gardens. Some of you may even register your garden as organic and ask for a spray-free zone outside your property.
At the moment a number of people are questioning the extensive use of Round-Up in our reserves and parks.
If you live in the Nelson City Council area, you can register your property as spray-free. This means that Council will not use sprays around your property, e.g. on the street or footpath outside. It also means that the more people who are requesting a spray-free zone, the more likely they are to look at alternatives for weed control (e.g some places use hot steam on pavements).
You can find out more info here and sign up your property.
