Be aware of the Canary dropping off its Perch!

Do you remember, how the miners used to take a Canary into the mine? When the Canary dropped off its perch because of its high sensitivity to Carbon-monoxide and Methane Gas, the miners heeded the warning, left the mine and thus saved
their lives.Well, Canaries (the highly sensitive, the very young, the elderly, the weak) are dropping off their perches in our community.

Do we heed their warning?

The Healthy Environment Group, HEG,  has set out to make our community a safe and wholesome place to live, by rising awareness about the dangers of herbicide and pesticide use by Council and the people of the area and by working with Council to improve their weed control practices.

The HEG proposes Community Standards regarding the dealings between neighbours when it comes to pesticide use. These include notification, consideration and protection.  Read our Community Standards for Private Properties
