Albemarle County limits pesticides in parks

I read in the Old Dominion Sierran that Albemarle County is limiting its use of pesticides and chemical cleaners in county parks. This was the result of research done by a group called Friends and Advocates for Children, Teachers and Schools (FACTS).

I don't see the article in the online Sierra Club site but here's a Charlottesville news report. Personally I've had some painful reactions (including pleurisy) to pesticides so I welcome news that they are being used less.
