Program Details

Healthy Food and Farms At the heart of sustainable agriculture is the belief that we must nurture the land just as it, in turn, nurtures us. It’s not only about avoiding harmful chemicals, it’s about investing in practices that conserve as well as cultivate. NCAP is working to create lively organic communities that will ensure a healthier future for our food, our farms and our farmers.
Healthy People and Communities Pesticides are often used in parks, schools and other areas where children live, learn and play. This puts kids at risk for exposure, which can lead to serious illness. We are working to protect growing minds and bodies by organizing and educating to make more places pesticide-free.
Healthy Wildlife and Water Salmon are a vital and historic part of ecology, food and culture throughout the Northwest. Sadly, the survival of these fish is threatened by pesticide pollution. We are fighting to save wild Salmon, Steelhead, and other aquatic wildlife by demanding the strong enforcement of laws meant to protect endangered fish from pesticides.
