is a national non-profit dedicated to educating the public about eco-friendly lawn and gardening practices.
National Mall Organic Renovation- In 2007, SafeLawns teamed up with the National Park Service and EPA to do a four acre organic conversion renovation on the National Mall in Washington, DC. The organic treatment will not only be safer for both the environment and visitors, but the organic treatment will also allow some of the nation's most trampled and compacted grass to survive better. The area is open to the public as of March 28, 2008, just in time for the National Cherry Blossom Festival. SafeLawns will also take the Rose Kennedy Greenway in Boston, MA organic in 2008.
Don't forget! April is National Lawn and Garden Month- Spring is a perfect time to educate consumers on how to "Go Green In Your Own Backyard," by using environmentally friendly techniques such as organic lawn care methods, electric and reel lawn mowers, smart watering, and planting for your region.
