How it all came aboutProud of its reputation as a vibrant, clean and safe town, Oakville is committed topracticing and promoting environmental stewardship. Every year, the Town implementsenvironmental programs, policies and by-laws for the benefit of our community. InDecember of 2006, Oakville Town Council proposed implementing a by-law restrictingthe use of pesticides within the Town on both private and public lands.On February 5 & 6 of 2007, Town Council listened to over 40 delegates who wishedto speak to the proposed pesticide by-law. On February 12th, 2007 Oakville Councilpassed the Pesticide By-law (By-Law 2007-036), which will regulate the use of chemicalpesticides on public and private properties within Town limits. This by-law will come intoforce and effect on January 1, 2008.In June 2007, several by-law revisions and an implementation plan were approved byCouncil.Implementation PlanPesticide Task ForceTo aid in developing a community-based public awareness strategy, Council approvedthe establishment of a Pesticide Task Force with the mandate to:“ provide advice to Council on the creation and execution of an education plan to enhanceefforts already being undertaken by the Town and Region of Halton to support theobjectives of the proposed Pesticide By-law and the development of a strategy to encouragecooperation and support from retailers who presently sell pesticides”- (Pesticide Task Force Terms of Reference)Affiliation2 members of Council1 member of the EnvironmentalStrategic Plan Advisory Committee1 member engaged in the retail sale of pesticide1 member of the lawn and garden industry whoactively carries out business in the Town2 members nominated by Gardens Off DrugsDirector of Environmental PolicyDirector of Parks and Open SpaceNameCouncillor Jeff KnollCouncillor Allan ElgarLiz BenneianAaron Mahoney, Home Depot,Special Events/Community OutreachDon McQueen, Owner, Nutri-LawnJoanne KaySusan CurranCindy TothChris MarkThe Task Force met often over a six-week period to consider the best components ofan Education and Outreach Strategy. A key recommendation was to develop this Guideto support the Oakville community’s compliance with the By-Law in a positive way byproviding a comprehensive reference on how to Garden Naturally.Oakville’s Guide to gardening naturally3

Pesticide awarenessPublic LandsThe Town has responsibility for 1,280 hectares of land out of a total of 13,971 hectareswithin the Town. Chemical pesticides have been used as a last resort on property ownedby the Town since 2002. The Town has used a number of practices for turf managementand other areas to maintain greenspaces, including: Different cutting regimes to increase the vigor of turf and reduce weed invasionThe use of integrated pest management techniques, emphasizing cultural, biologicaland monitoring techniquesIncreased use of naturalizationThe installation of irrigation systemOne preferred practice has been to use horticultural vinegar to aid in controlling unwantedpests. Under regulations set by the Ministry of the Environment, Town staff must postpesticide signs when applying horticultural vinegar.Private Lands - Naturally Green Education CampaignTogether with the City of Burlington, Town of Milton, Town of Halton Hills, Landscape Ontarioand the Organic Landscape Alliance, Oakville is a member of Halton Partners for NaturallyGreen led by Halton Region, . In June 2003, the partners launched a public education andawareness program to inform the public about the potential risks of pesticides and thealternatives that are available, such as biological and cultural control methods, to createhealthy and attractive lawns and gardens. Council, at its meeting of February 16, 2004,resolved to develop and implement a targeted education campaign to promote a reductionin the use of pesticides on private property.The Town produced an information sheet to keep residents informed on the actionstaken across Halton Region regarding pesticide use (Appendix A). Appendix B providesthe Halton Partner’s “10 Steps to Naturally Green.”Pesticide Registry and Sensitive Use AreasIn 2004, the Town also established a registry for individuals who are sensitive to pesticides.Individuals sensitive to the use of pesticides registered by contacting the PesticideInformation Line. Educational materials, along with a letter from the Town, were sent toneighbouring properties within 50 metres of registrants. The information advised thatan individual with pesticide sensitivities, lived nearby and promoted consideration.This service will be discontinued on January 1, 2008 when the by-law comes into forceand effect.4Oakville’s Guide to gardening naturally

Pesticide awarenessTown-wide “Sensitive Use” AreasTown residents have been encouraged to identify if their property is within 50 metresof an area identified as being a “sensitive use” area. Reducing the use of pesticides inlocations where children and residents with vulnerable health reside is advisable. Sensitiveuse areas include properties containing schools, licensed daycares, playgrounds, parks,churches and other faith organizations, licensed seniors’ residences, universities andhospitals.Education is where it all begins .A general understanding of the by-law is critical to its success community-wide. It is notabout what is prohibited, but about what options are available and successful.This document provides: Information to Oakville residents on the specifics of the by-law Detailed information regarding proper cultural practices, alternatives to chemicalfertilizers and pesticides, common pest problems and identification, water-efficientlandscaping and native plantsOutreach InitiativesThe Town of Oakville, in partnership with the Naturally Green education program,participates regularly in a wide variety of community outreach activities each year.Check the Town of Oakville’s and the Region of Halton’s websites for more informationon Green Gardening community events throughout Halton.Governing the Sale of PesticidesAlthough the Town of Oakville has worked to protect the natural environment from theunnecessary application of chemical pesticides, it cannot govern the sale of pesticides.Products not in compliance with Oakville’s by-law will still remain available. It is up to theconsumer to ensure the products they purchase are in compliance with the Town’s bylaw. Look for naturally organic products, such as the ones described in this guide.Educationand Outreach“Education: a debt due from present to future generations.”- George PeabodyOakville’s Guide to gardening naturally5

Many of the techniques suggested work with nature to create healthylawns and gardens. If you have been using pesticides on your lawn and garden regularly,it is likely that many of the beneficial organisms in your soil have been killed. Be patient.Over time, as you use the good cultural practices suggested in this guide, they will comeback and work to improve your lawn’s appearance.Insecticidal Soaps(fatty acids)Makeup: fatty acids that are biodegradable similar to household soapsQualities: works upon contact with target pestsAvailable in: ready-to-use products, liquid concentrates, (may be in combination withother pesticides)Targets: soft body insects, aphids, caterpillars, crickets, fleas, flies, mitesMineral Oil(horticultural oil, dormant oil)Makeup: emulsified oil to be diluted in waterQualities: acts upon contact with pest, suffocates and disrupts physical processesAvailable in: liquid concentrateTargets: aphids, spider mites, mealy bugs, sawfly larvae, whiteflies, plant bugs,caterpillars, and plant diseases such as rust and mildewSilicon Dioxide(diatomaceous earth)Makeup: fossilized diatom (phytoplankton algae) shells from natural depositsQualities: dehydrates pests, has long residual effect under dry conditionsAvailable in: dust form or wettable powdersTargets: earwigs, ants, cockroaches and fleas both indoor and outdoor applications8Oakville’s Guide to gardening naturally

Getting startedGetting StartedTo ‘Garden Naturally’ the focus must be prevention and not a product-based approach.This plan is based on sustainability and may take some time. It should start by identifyingorganic matter and soil composition.Get to know your soil.Did you know.Sandy soils are predominant south of theQEW, whereas red clayis common north of theQEW.Conduct a Soil Strength Test or Textural AnalysisBy getting to know your soil, you can concentrate your efforts where they are needed.First you must know your soil composition. There is a simple strength test that can bedone with your own hands.1) Take a small amount of moist soil in the palm of your hand2) Squeeze this moist ball of soil in your hands or try to roll it between the palms ofyour hands, and if the soil:a) breaks apart when you open your hands, you have sandy soilb) stays together, try pushing some of the soil out of the ball and into a ribbon. Ifyou can’t make a ribbon, you have loamy sand soilFor all other types of soils, you should be able to form a ribbon of soil by rolling it betweenthe palms of your hands. Roll it out as long as possible and measure it, then take a smallpiece of that ribbon and discard the rest. Add enough water to this smaller piece of soil,to make a mini mud puddle. Now rub your finger in this mud puddle to determine if it feelsgritty like sand or smooth and sticky like clay. Once that is determined, compare yourfindings with the results below. This will confirm your soil type.If the ribbon is:Gritty and shorter than 1”Smooth and equally short ribbonsGritty and smooth short ribbonsGritty ribbons between 1” – 2”SmoothGritty and smoothGritty and longer than 2”Smooth and gritty and longer than 2”TypeSandy Loam SoilSilty LoamLoamSandy Clay LoamSilty Clay LoamClay LoamSilty ClayClayNow that you know what soil type you are working with, you can determine your soil’s ability to hold nutrients and water and its likelihood of compaction. Soil composed mostly ofsand has fewer tendencies to hold nutrients and is also less likely to become compactedwhen compared to soil made mostly of clay.12Oakville’s Guide to gardening naturally

These products are not in compliance withthe by-law. No restrictions have been placed on fertilizers in this by-law, only on thecombination products such as the ‘Weed and Feed’ products.orange juice---- 6.0 ----egg yoks---- 7.0 ---- NEUTRAL---- 1.0 ----Nutrient Analysisdistilled water---- 8.0 ----sea water--- 9.0 ---vinegarFor soils that are too alkaline, it is recommended you add:Flowers of Sulphur: used to increase soil acidity and should be applied before the growing seasonEvergreen Needles: are highly acidic and work as a great mulch-- 10.0 --battery acidFor soils that are too acidic, it is recommended you add:Lime: to neutralize the acidity of your soil.

Once this has been determined, youcan amend your soil as needed. Generally plants do well in soils that are between 6-7 onthe pH scale. This relates to a neutral soil with the same pH characteristics as milk orpure water. Soils below 6 are considered too acidic, while soils above 7 are consideredtoo alkaline.swimming pool wateregg whites-- 11.0 ------ 0.0 ---VERY ACIDICAlthough no restrictions have been placed on chemical fertilizers, there is still the optionto go organic. Below is a list of natural fertilizers and some general information usefulto review before purchasing fertilizer products.Oakville’s Guide to gardening naturally13

Getting startedWhen purchasing fertilizer, what do the numbers mean?The numbers represent the percentage of each nutrient that is contained in each bag.The order that these number appear will remain constant; only the percentage of eachnutrient will change.For example: 20-10-4 indicates that the fertilizer mixture contains 20% nitrogen, 10%phosphorous and 4% potassium.Did you know.Soil pH test kits areavailable at most homeand garden centreswithin Oakville.

Classical approach to management is a set of homogeneous ideas on the management of organizations that evolved in the late 19 th century and early 20 century. This perspective emerges from the industrial revolution and centers on theories of efficiency.
