Note: don’t forget to check for a next page on GreenMed articles. Often I’ve missed the fact there’s more. Read the article at the GreenMedInfo site HERE
This weekend I’ll be updating on the Rangitikei & the glyphosate spraying issue with Council. Much is developing on the ban glyphosate front world wide (will update on that too) … hopefully it will gain traction here in NZ soon.
