Lawns to Meadows with Owen Wormser
Sept 16 @ 8 PM EST

What’s so bad about lawns? They’re a thirsty monocrop comprised of a single plant variety that is usually non-native, dependent on toxic herbicides and chemical fertilizers, and requires labor and fossil fuel-intensive mowing.

In a world where lawns have wreaked havoc on our natural ecosystems, meadows offer a compelling solution, because they:

  • establish wildlife and pollinator habitats
  • are low-maintenance and low-cost
  • have a built-in resilience that helps them weather climate extremes
  • draw down and store far more carbon dioxide than any manicured lawn

You can grow a meadow anywhere—it doesn't matter if you have a pocket lawn or football field-sized backyard. You can do your part to reduce the 63,000 square miles of lawn in America (the size of Texas!).

In this webinar, guest presenter Owen Wormser will explain how to plant your own organic meadow, using the basic practices of meadow design, and take you on a tour of a meadow to tell the story of how he brought it to life.
