Event: DIY Organic Lawn

Beyond Pesticides Ohio will present free comprehensive training sessions on why and how to implement an affordable organic turf care program. Each session will be introduced by Beyond Pesticides Ohio staff and led by natural turf expert Alec McClennan, President of Good Nature Organic Lawn Care. Topics include proper soil testing, natural weed control, special needs for playing fields, and the cost benefits of organic turf management.

You can protect people's health and the environment and also save money by transitioning to organic turf practices. Cleveland Heights and Cuyahoga County have already banned Lawn Pesticides from all city and county-owned property. University Circle’s Wade Oval also went organic. The reasons are clear: pesticide exposure is dangerous to people and the ecosystem. Many commonly used pesticides have been associated with elevated risks for acquiring asthma, childhood leukemia, learning disabilities and Parkinson’s disease.
