The Lawn Reform Coalition Blog is Born
Zazzle account where supporters can order up their Lawn Reform swag - buttons, T-shirts, hats, and more. And a "tag cloud" so readers can search on the blog for terms like "front yard," "buffalograss" or "California" to get really specific help for their own gardens.
We're looking for as many guest contributors as possible, so DO contact us if you have a story to tell - how you've reduced or eliminated your lawn, about a low-water lawn species you're trying, or just a horrific example of lawn care advice that could have been written by Big Chem (and probably was). Already we have contributions in the pipepine about:
•Front yard edible gardens from the Germinatrix herself - Ivette Soler, who's our most ardent supporter on Facebook, hands down.
•Mary Ann Newcomer will show us her favorite lawn-to-garden make-overs.
•The Garden Rant's Elizabeth has promised reports of the very best examples of lawnless front yards that Buffalo has to offer.
•And of course we've asked another Garden Ranter, Michele Owens, if she has any thoughts about giving up lawn for the growing of some food, and of course she has.
SO GET IN THE LOOP
