Green Thumb Project(pesticide free lawn care)



GREAT LAKES - GREAT LAWNS 

The Green Thumb Project is an innovative, educational, pollution prevention
program that demonstrates alternative lawn/turf management practices. The
project works with groundskeepers, homeowners, businesses, schools and
churches. The project seeks to increase awareness of the impact of
pesticides and fertilizers to the Great Lakes ecosystem. This is a zero
discharge project. 

We have speakers available to give free 1 hour presentations to church
groups, garden clubs, community groups and others in the
Duluth, Minnesota and Superior, Wisconsin areas. For other areas,
we are available for conferences and workshops at varying rates.

A video and guidebook made available through the Green Thumb Project. They
highlight lawn management practices as alternatives to using pesticides and
synthetic-based fertilizers and are available for $25.00 (includes shipping
and handling).
