What does a $100 contribution do for this organization?
Grow our Sustainable and Organic Agriculture Program and further expand healthy farming practices in the Northwest. $100 will underwrite the cost of two farmers attending our organic field days to learn more about effective practices.
Why does this donor support this organization?
I support NCAP because I am as motivated as ever when it comes to protecting kids and the environment from toxic pesticides.
How do volunteers make a difference for this organization?
NCAP needs your help protecting health and the environment and advancing alternatives to pesticides. Volunteers are needed to help with a variety of tasks in the office.

NCAP empowers communities to make change happen not only in their backyards and gardens, but also in their communities.

For over three decades, NCAP has combined community outreach, education, advocacy and organizing to protect the health of people and the environment by advancing alternatives to pesticides. Rural residents and reforestation workers concerned about herbicide spraying in Northwest forests formed the group in 1977.

NCAP has a variety of programs benefiting rural and urban communities throughout the Northwest. NCAP is urging better protections to keep pesticides out of water; establishing safe, pesticide-free places for kids to live, learn and play; strengthening sustainable agriculture and rural economies; and educating people about using alternatives to pesticides in and around their homes.
