Northampton RoundUp Controversy Continues

Athletic fields under construction in Florence got a one-time hit of RoundUp Tuesday.  But protesters say the contractor didn’t do enough to contain the anti-weed spray from drifting onto a nearby organic farm and community gardens.  Mayor David Narkewicz visited the site during the spraying and says he’s satisfied with the contractor’s work.  The group “Grow Food Northampton” is pushing the city to adopt organic turf-management practices.
