The Front Lawn Challenge

Tuesday, April 18, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.

Over time, traditional home landscapes have become smaller as trends in gardening and interests in plants have changed. Recent research shows that America’s love for the lawn, regardless of region, is “killing” soils, depleting resources, polluting the environment and creating social barriers within neighborhoods. Whether it is the resurgence of interest in home grown produce, a desire for more ecological responsibility, or a passion make the garden as relevant in the front of the house as in back, many homeowners are re-examining the use of their front lawn, boulevards and terraces. Ed Lyon has developed two different front lawn gardens that provide interesting new lessons he will share by examining issues and looking at examples of gardeners who have converted their front yard spaces for various reasons and purposes.

Preregistration with prepayment is required by Friday, April 14.
