Published 3:48 pm, Wednesday, June 2, 2010
Grow more green, but spend less green doing it.
That's the theme of a program, "Green Up Your Yard with Organic Land and Lawn Care: Save Money and the Environment," planned next Tuesday by Westport Conservation Director Alicia Mozian. The workshop will take place from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at Earthplace, 10 Woodside Lane.
The program, presented by the Organic Land Care program and the Northeast Organic Farming Association of Connecticut (CT NOFA), is free and open to the public.
Topics covered will include why organic land care is beneficial, and those attending will be provided with the practical tools and information needed to maintain organic lawns and landscapes.
For participants who would like to learn more, there will be resources available to help find and evaluate a certified landscaper who will maintain lawns and landscapes organically.
CT NOFA promotes methods of farming, gardening and land care that take into account biodiversity, soil, water, air and the needs of future generations.
