Legislation could move state away from use of glyphosate

Monsanto’s RoundUp product on the shelves.

GREAT BARRINGTON — A grassroots effort to reduce exposure to glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup weed killer, has gained traction with two local boards planning to take up discussions around the use and application of the pesticide.

This month, the town’s Board of Health and the Conservation Commission will separately discuss the use of glyphosate, in part due to the spearheaded effort of the Green Tea Party (GTP) of Great Barrington.

Nan Wile, a Great Barrington resident, and a member of the unofficial GTP, has been conducting local outreach in what she describes as an effort to raise awareness and launch an educational campaign around the use of glyphosate.
