Filmmaker Andrew Nisker’s investigation into the death of his father takes him deep into the world of golf, chemical lobbying, and citizen activism, where he learns that the rampant use of pesticides around the world may be far more damaging than he thought. What chance do we have at creating a safer world for ourselves and our children? The answer may lay with the incredible people he encounters along his journey. Watch the trailer.

The film includes the inspiring local story of Montgomery County’s landmark pesticide law and investigates how lawn chemicals affect water.

Door open at 6:15pm, light refreshments and wine will be served as part of a fundraiser. Come early to visit and talk to sponsors and activists, and pick up relevant information at the sponsor tables, followed by 7:00pm documentary showing. A panel discussion with local activists and experts, including Paul Tukey (Glenstone Museum Chief Sustainability Officer) and Jay Feldman (Beyond Pesticides Executive Director) will follow the film. 

Please help us extend this invitation to your members and social media followers who have been so supportive on the pesticide issue. Film is free and event is open to the public. Free tickets can be reserved at:

We look forward to seeing you there!
