title says it allmy concern of course is with the spraying and chemical use.
are you that much worse off right next to the vineyard than you would be a few streets away or even miles away? is the drift that significant?
is it worse than several green, pesticide full, sprayed etc lawns?
anyone have first hand experience?
would you have a well? if so- no way!!
-that would be a major factor for us
I place airborne toxics high on my list of things to avoid, and sprayed pesticides and fertilizers are up there with the worst, in my opinion. Drift IS an issue. I DO think it's worse than a suburban lawn because the frequency and intensity of chemical application seems much higher and the delivery method is riskier. But, if it's a sustainable (though maybe not organic) vinyard, family-owned or maybe owned by someone who treats his grapes like babies, then the risk profile would be totally different.
