Early Spring 2017 - Upcoming Events!

The recent spell of warm weather in mid/late February has left New England with a feeling of spring in the air.  While it's far too early to start fertilizing (I heard Lowe's already has Scott's Step #1 on display), the time is right to plan for the 2017 organic lawn care season.

If you've ever wondered what organic lawn care is all about, or if the drought conditions did a number on your grass last year, or even if you just want to discuss lawn maintenance- then I invite you to come to one of my upcoming talks.

Tuesday March 7th, from 6:30-8 pm, the Pembroke library will be hosting Jack Conway Realtor's "Go Green At Home" series.  I will be presenting a talk on organic lawn care and maintaining your lawn through periods of summer drought.  Todd Breitenstein from the Grateful Garden in Hanover will also be at this event.  Todd is very knowledgeable in the field of organic vegetable growing so if you get a chance to speak with him I encourage you to do so.

Saturday April 1st, the North & South Rivers Watershed Association will be putting on their annual Gardening Green Expo, hosted by Kennedy's Country Gardens in Scituate.  The theme this year will be gardening in times of drought.  I will have an exhibitor's table set up and I will be presenting a talk as well.  This event is a fun kickoff to the gardening season.  More info to come!
