Restoring Eden: Unearthing the Agribusiness Secret That Poisoned My Farming Community with Elizabeth Hilborn

As an environmental scientist trained to investigate disease outbreaks, Elizabeth Hilborn rose to the challenge. Step by step, day by day, despite facing headwinds from skeptical neighbors, environmental experts, and agricultural consultants, she’d assembled information. Her observations provided a framework, a timeline to explain the evidence she’d collected. The chemicals found in her water samples showed beyond any doubt that not only her farm, but her greater farming community, was at risk from toxic chemicals that travelled with rain water over the land, into water, and deep within the soil. Hilborn was given a front row seat to the insect apocalypse.

Dr. Elizabeth D. Hilborn is a writer, a scientist and a veterinarian with expertise in honey bee medicine. For decades she’s grown fruits and vegetables for her family and local community.Hilborn’s scientific reports in epidemiology and environmental health science focus on the health effects associated with water pollution, emerging infections, and extreme weather events. She’s served as an Epidemic Intelligence Service Fellow at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and is a senior staff scientist at the Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Research and Development.
