Hudson Quebec | Pesticide Free Failure | Hand Weeding Bounty| 10 cent per Kilogram
WANTED – DEAD
With ragweed season in full bloom, the Town of Hudson is launching an innovative way of inviting citizen involvement in clearing private property of the allergen by putting a bounty of $0.10 a kilo on the loathsome crop.
Until September 14, residents are asked to bring the harvested weed, roots included, to the Parks and Recreation office at the Stephen F. Shaar Community Centre, 394 Main Road, where it will be weighed and paid. Plants must not have been treated with pesticides and dirt from the roots must be shaken clean.
Contest is open until September 14 at 12 p.m. (noon) and the winner of the greatest haul of ragweed, plus the crisp new $100 bill – will be announced in the September 17 edition of Your Local Journal.
