How to Eat Your Lawn

Dreaming of an edible estate? Closing our Sustainable September series is this Saturday’s collaborative program with Phipps Conservatory. We’ll begin with a screening of Gimme Green, a short but clever documentary that examines the $40 billion industry that harmfully impacts the environment and our wallets — the lawn.

Fall’s arrival doesn’t mean you should stop thinking about your garden. After the film, Scott, a horticulturist at Phipps, will share tips on how to make the most out of your front lawn. Project Green Heart, started in 2008, incorporates the fundamentals of Phipps’ green initiatives to teach you ways to adopt environmentally conscious living in your own backyard. You’ll also leave with information on Phipps’ Top 10 Sustainable Plants.

The program runs from 3:00 to 5:00 pm and takes place in classroom A.
