In two years, our Midwest Grows Green initiative has helped transition more than 250 acres to natural lawn care for the benefit and safety of children, pets, and wildlife across the Midwest.
Now, we want to celebrate these accomplishments and demonstrate that we can reduce pesticide, fertilizer, and water use on all lawns, gardens, and landscapes.
With funds raised from this Community Thrives Grant, we will show that the natural lawn community thrives across the largest population in the Midwest, Greater Chicago, by hosting our inaugural Chicago Grows Green Week from May 11th through May 18th.
Each dollar raised will go towards natural lawn demonstrations, dandelion pulling at MGG Pesticide-Free Parks, peer-to-peer learning workshops and more during this week.
