Conventional lawn weed killers
present risks for people, pets, and the
environment. Understanding these risks
may motivate one to learn more about
natural lawn care practices. Family
Practice Physician Claire Gervais, MD,
will discuss the specific risks of lawn care
pesticides followed by Horticulturist Astrid
Newenhouse, Ph.D., who will present
natural and organic ways to maintain a
lawn. She will discuss current research
information on overseeding, soil health,
compost, irrigation, and weed control.
Drs. Gervais and Newenhouse will also
share ideas on how to encourage our
community to adopt healthier lawn care
practices.
