Webinar Summary:
The Environmental Disaster that is the American Lawn

Webinar Description:
When Randy Johnson first put this presentation together… Dallas County water use per day was 70 million gallons (2012). Now: 350 million gallons of water used every day (2022)… most of it for turfgrass.

This presentation discusses the origin and evolution of the maintained ‘lawn’. From it’s beginnings in Europe and England to it’s ‘import’ and promotion in the United States, exposing some of the environmental, financial and social consequences of the seemingly benign lawn.
Alternatives to the monstrosity will be offered.

Randy wants to offer this one first because it’s one of the few realms directly in control of the ‘average person’, implement immediate, positive management protocols without much hassle or expense. You can easily create both wildlife and human habitat by removing lawn and installing natives and food crops.

“I love teaching and helping folks, looking forward to sharing this with everyone, Thank you… RJ”

STAY TUNED… Part of a 3-series educational presentations.
