Hosted by Sara Davison

Co-spons0red by The Friends of Georgica Pond Foundation

Toxic, synthetic lawn and landscape chemicals pollute our local waterways, endanger wildlife, and are linked to a range of serious health problems in humans and pets. It is a persistent myth that they are essential to a “perfect” lawn and landscape. In this informative lecture, landscape designer and Perfect Earth Project Founder/President Edwina von Gal will explain why and how to manage your beautiful lawn and garden without synthetic fertilizers and pesticides and what the Perfect Earth Project is doing to make communities everywhere safe and PRFCT (managed without toxic chemicals).
