Our goals for the implementation phase of the project came from
the interaction with mothers and care givers who participated in the
Photovoice© planning processing. The three statements below describe
the strategies and objectives for each of the three activities included in the
Use the Photovoice© exhibit to engage community members in
dialog to explore the issue of pesticide exposure, especially exposure of young
children, and consider ways in which the community can respond.
Provide training to raise awareness and provide knowledge base
to public health workers so they have the capacity to share important and useful
messages with mothers and caretakers.
Increase access to locally grown pesticide-free foods in the region by
supporting backyard and community gardens, CSA’s and farmers markets.
