Description

Late last year some interested members of ANGAIR and FEO met to look at our procedures for the use of glyphosate when we weed. This was sparked because of a court case in the US where Monsanto, who manufacture Round-up, was sued by an individual worker who had contracted non Hodgkins lymphoma. He won his case.

One outcome of the meeting was to provide safety information to as many weeders as we can so that we can all be fully informed. To that end, you are invited to attend a session for approximately an hour in the ANGAIR Office to quickly summarise safety procedures around the use of herbicides and to give you an opportunity to raise questions.

John Slykhuis has kindly offered to run the session for us. John is well-versed in this area, having taught it for many years at Gordon TAFE.

We would like to know the numbers to expect so could you kindly RSVP by February 10 to above email address or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Many thanks
