Audubon Greenwich: Apply Organic Principles to Your Own Backyard

CT NOFA’s Organic Lawn & Land Care Workshop hosted by Audubon Greenwich Thursday, April 3, 6:00-9:00 PM

Presented by CT NOFA with Camilla Worden, Dwight Brooks, Jenna Messier, and Michael Nadeau

Through simple organic practices and building a healthy soil food web, every lawn can be organic AND the envy of the neighborhood. The National Audubon Society’s Bird-friendly Communities program in Connecticut is working to provide bird-friendly havens for birds living in and migrating through our neighborhoods and parklands.

The NOFA Organic Land Care Program, a program of CT NOFA, has worked to extend organic agriculture principles to yards, gardens and playing fields since 1999.

These two missions come together for a evening event on Thursday, April 3, 2014 from 6:00-9:00 pm, when Audubon Greenwich and the NOFA Organic Land Care Program host parents, and homeowners, and landscapers for an Organic Lawn & Land Care workshop at Audubon Greenwich. Attendees will learn from Jenna Messier, Michael Nadeau, Camilla Worden, and Dwight Brooks – each of whom are esteemed NOFA-accredited Organic Land Care Professionals. Attendees will learn why organic land and lawn care is important for ourselves and our planet; offer practical advice on how to have an organic lawn; and introduce you to exciting and beautiful lawn alternatives to spice up your yard.
