MGG On the Road
This fall, we’re bringing Midwest Grows Green (MGG) on the road! Our journey begins in Lisle for the Lisle Organic Parks Kickoff, August 17th. A month later, we install pollinator friendly lawns across Greater Chicago for Eco Installation Weekend and implement six organic parks across Western Michigan for Grand Rapids Grows Green Weekend. Finally we wrap things in October by discussing compost topdressing for Champaign Country Grows Green Weekend and a celebration of our successes at Patagonia Chicago (info TBA).
MGG Lawn & Land Forum
The MGG Lawn & Land Forum is a collaboration between MGG and the Illinois Sports Turf Managers Association, supported by the North Central Integrated Pest Management Center (NCIPM) to document, summarize, and improve the state of IPM and Natural Lawn Care policies and practices locally, regionally, and nationally. All summaries, findings, and resources developed from this forum remain free and open source to turf managers, policymakers, and individuals interested in applying IPM policies.[bpt]
