About

Non Toxic Dover, NH is a citizen’s group dedicated to awareness, education and reducing pesticide use in the city. It began in July 2013 in response to the little yellow pesticide application signs on the library lawn. A pesticide known to harm bee populations was being used. Since then our efforts have resulted in the city no longer using this type of insecticide, but that is merely a small first step in sustainability. Much more work needs to be done. We seek to change the attitudes of not only city officials towards the use of pesticides – but also the community by advocating for organic lawn and land care to protect public health.

To get involved you may join our group , follow our Facebook page and sign our latest petition.

the sign that started it all.
