Case Studies

The movement away from weed control with herbicides is increasing rapidly following the findings in 2015 by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) of probable carcinogenicity of glyphosate. To date, this has been the major herbicide used for both Bush Regeneration and for weed control in Public Spaces. Each year, peer reviewed studies increase our knowledge of the health and environmental hazards of herbicides.

In both Bush Regeneration, and in Public Spaces, there has been little attention to animal health. Studies have shown the negative impact of glyphosate on ruminant animals and on chickens.

Samsel and Seneff outline the possible metabolic pathways which could lead to human gut malfunctioning and to nutritional deficiencies. Similarly, the importance of the soil microbiome to environmental (and agricultural) health has been sadly neglected.

  • Bush Regeneration – healthy Landcare
  • Public Spaces – glyphosate restrictions around the world
