Transform your lawn to save our ecosystem

March 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

March 21 at 7pm. Turf grass lawn covers more of the U.S. than any other irrigated crop. Lawns are resource-heavy, requiring mowing, irrigation, fertilizer, and pesticides to thrive.

Learn why you should transition your lawn using beautiful and environmentally friendly plants. Incorporating native plants in lawns and gardens helps to mitigate floods, heat waves, sea-level rise, and the mass extinction of species. Is it time to “kill your lawn?”

Webinar Speaker: Mark Richardson, Director of Horticulture, New England Botanic Garden at Tower Hill.  Mark has a passion for ecological horticulture and native plants. He has previously held leadership roles at The New England Wildflower Society and Longwood Gardens. Mark earned a B.S. in Urban Horticulture (URI) and an M.S. in Public Horticulture ( U. of Delaware). New England Botanic Garden at Tower Hill sits on 200 acres. The Garden cares for an irreplaceable collection of plants. Sustainability and environmental stewardship are at the forefront of its work.
