Green 4 Good Keep on the Lawn Campaign

Do you have a Healthy, non-toxic lawn? Do you want to have one?

The steps are:

  • get a Healthy Lawn Healthy Families Brochure
  • use best practices (know your soil, mow high, water less, avoid chemicals and use organics)
  • take a pledge and hand it in to the Park District at the Depot
  • get a “Keep ON the Lawn” yard sign

We can drop off the brochure; we are also happy to answer questions and if you’re talking to others who are interested we can talk to them, too. Thanks for helping create a safer and healthier community!
