Improve Your Lawn - and Save Money

Many homeowners work hard to have a green, healthy lawn. Now you can learn how to get the best lawn while working less on it, saving money, and being kinder to the environment.

Attend this free workshop: Healthy, Sustainable Lawns for Everyone by Frank Crandall at the Cross Mills Public Library on Thursday, April 7, at 6 pm.

You know our drinking water comes from wells, in Charlestown. Think about how a portion of what you put on your lawn ends up in your drinking water!

In this workshop you will learn:
  • How to install and maintain a healthy lawn with reduced amounts of fertilizer and nitrogen,
  • Sound cultural methods and organic lawn care techniques,
  • About useful ways to measure properties, follow label recommendations and calibrate your fertilizer spreader,
  • How to recognize the difference between inorganic and organic fertilizers, what WIN and WSN forms of nitrogen are and why that is very important,
You will also see photos of traditional lawns as they transitioned to organically-maintained.

Come to this workshop to help your lawn, our water resources and your pocketbook.
