    We'll be exhibiting at NE Grows and Ecological Landscapers Association (ELA)

    I'll have to check that one out

    You know, Paul was known as Mr. 2-4-D before he collasped in his driveway and started spitting blood from pesticide poisoning. True story

    My employer got started in organics after bad skin and respiratory reactions from grub control.

    You have to be a MAN to apply chemicals! :weightlifter:

    I'm kidding.

    It will be a great show to check out. Unfortunately, we won't be there for Nutrients PLUS, we have to head down to the Orlando Golf Show. (I know, sounds rough) But definitely try and make it if you can.

    I blame my baldness on 20 years of spraying trees. ;)

    They should do a study on the connection between baldness and pesticides, when I worked for someone else (incidentally which is why I decided to look into organics) he had a pesticide business for 20 some years and was bald w/glasses. When I went to take my initial training for my license, same thing only he was a termite guy bald with glasses. I've taken a couple classes at Rutgers taught by Scott Guiser and if anyone has met him, same. I think there must some type of connection, but who knows.
