Where do you get your evidence from that Roundup is toxic? I would dearly love to read it.
As far as I can find out there is no evidence that it contaminates the soil when used properly. It is only where farmers are pouring the stuff on in huge amounts that there seems to be a small problem.
Pesticides are maybe a different matter.
The only thing I would be concerned about is wind drift, if they spray carelessly.
We have used Roundup in this garden for the last 20 years and we are still very much alive and eating the fruit and veg we produce. Not actually on the Veg patch but everywhere else, otherwise we would be drowning in ground elder, brambles, cow parsley, wild carrots and bindweed.
