The next meeting of the Alternative Garden Club will be Wednesday, October 4 at 7:30 PM in the Sugar House Garden Center. The topic will be “A New Look at Old Lawns.” There is a fascinating history behind this landscape feature that most of us take for granted. Why do we plant lawns in the English-speaking world, whereas most other cultures don’t? Do lawns contribute to global warming? Can they be environmentally friendly? Come learn the answers to these and other questions.
