How to Keep Your Farm Or Family Safer

Whether your biggest concern is your farm or your family, an Atlanta workshop April 12-13 will address environmental concerns of interest to you.

Key topics include:

  • Ways to ensure that your well water is safe.
  • How to care for your septic system.
  • Safe ways to handle pesticides and fertilizers.

Farm*A*Syst/Home*A*Syst concepts and materials will be the focus of the workshop. The Farm*A*Syst/Home*A*Syst program is an interagency partnership. It provides farmers and homeowners information and a voluntary means to manage their farms or homes to prevent pollution and ensure their families' well-being.

The workshop will be at the Federal Building at 61 Forsyth St., SW, in Atlanta. It's free, but you must pre-register to attend.

To register, or for more information, contact Lisa Ann McKinley at (404) 562-9403. Or e-mail
