South Burlington, Vermont (March 31, 2006) - The public introduction of GREENCURE®, the eco-friendly, potassium bicarbonate-based fungicide will occur at the 2006 NYC Grows Garden Festival on Saturday, April 29, in Union Square Park.

Renowned Cornell University plant pathologist, Dr. Ken Horst, whose research led to the development of GREENCURE® will be on hand to talk with gardeners and share his knowledge of preventing and curing plant diseases, including powdery mildew, black spot, anthracnose, blights, and other problems that vex even the best gardeners.

GREENCURE® is the safer alternative to harsh fungicides. Its active ingredient, potassium bicarbonate, is commonly used in food products and is "generally recognized as safe" by the FDA. Its patented formula enhances the preventative and curative properties of this environmentally friendly, yet powerful natural ingredient. It can be used in organic production. Product demonstrations and free samples of GREENCURE® will be available at the booth.

Also featured at this booth and fitting hand-in-hand with the spirit of the garden festival will be BIONIC GLOVES, the revolutionary line of gloves that has received the Ease-of-Use Commendation by the Arthritis Foundation. The unique design of BIONIC GLOVES improves grip strength and reduces hand fatigue. Specific styles of BIONIC GLOVES are available for gardening, rose gardening, heavy-duty work, equestrian activities, golf, driving, and fitness.
