Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Our organization aims to transform the way people view their lawns. For the past 70 years or so, Americans have been told that the only healthy, beautiful lawn is a monoculture. We've polluted our soils and watersheds with toxic chemicals to achieve perfection in our lawns; we've also focused our collective efforts on eliminating diversity in our lawns, such as clover and dandelions, which serve as valuable food sources for pollinators. This dangerous approach to lawn care has endangered wildlife, exposed our families to carcinogens, destroyed the life in our soils, and contributed to climate change.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To achieve our mission, we will provide the resources and information West Michigan residents need to grow a healthy, organic lawn, without cost ever being a barrier.

Our goal is to offer, at no cost, organic fertilizer, organic pest control, soil amendments, grass and clover seed and the equipment needed to maintain a healthy lawn. We will also offer educational resources, including videos, workshops, web resources, books and meet-ups.
