There are many alternatives to deal with dandelions other than poison

Letter from Trisha Rasku of Rossland

I was very concerned about the plight of the bees.

Read story here: Bees

It is very disheartening to lose a “crop.”

I have been very careful to not use any poisons while gardening.

I used to dig out dandelions.

But several years ago, I decided to use the dandelions and infused the blossoms in oil to make soap, and made salads from the leaves.

The problem I now have is a lack of the dandelions.

There are many ways to use alternatives to poisons.
