Take the Midwest Grows Green Pledge!

I pledge to participate in this MGG community and push for synthetic chemical reduction at all places where children, pets, and wildlife live and play.

I pledge to reduce my use of herbicide products such as glyphosate (Round Up), 2,4 D, and/or “weed and feed”.

I pledge to adopt one or more of the following natural lawn care practices:

  • Mow high - I will mow my grass to no less than 3 inches.
  • Water properly - I will water my lawn with no more than 1 inch per week.
  • Fertilize organically - I will use only naturally derived organic fertilizers on my lawn and garden such as compost, compost tea, alfalfa meal, etc.
