Kill Your Lawn
Wednesday, April 19, 1 – 2:15 p.m. CST
Every house in America should be fronted with a non-native monoculture with the maintenance requirements of a golf course and the ecological value of a strip mine; a place where all flowers are called weeds and signs to the extent of ‘keep off’ are the norm. Does the idea seem a bit odd to you? It’s time to take a second look at this idea we call lawn. Join ecologist, horticulturist, and author Dan Jaffe Wilder to explore alternatives; from whole lawn replacement options, to strategies for reducing lawn inputs while increasing their ecological value.
