For two and a half years, our Midwest Grows Green Lawn & Land Forum  has fostered peer-to-peer learning of best natural lawn care practices, policies and strategies.  More than 250 park and school district staff, municipal policymakers, turf care providers and community members have attended at least one of the Forum’s 10 sessions. These entities provide landscaping services, recreational opportunities and educational programs for more than four million people.

For 2019, the IPM Institute  wishes to scale these Forum successes to reach more policymakers and practitioners, initiate actionable discussions surrounding natural lawn care (NLC) and complete the implementation of NLC programs. To accomplish these tasks, the MGG Lawn & Land Forum plans to create an online toolkit that advocates, turfgrass managers and policymakers can turn to when making NLC policy and programmatic decisions that reduce chemical use, satisfy community needs and remain economically feasible.

Early in 2019, the web-design firm Elevation  accepted this toolkit for their 1-to-1 matching grant (see bit.ly/IPMelevation). The grant will provide web design services to the IPM Institute at half the cost of the market value ($8,950). However, we need to provide a match of $8,050 to receive these services!   

All funds raised from this GoFundMe will be directed towards the match so that we can make an accessible, appealing and online natural lawn care resource for all.  

For any questions about this campaign, Midwest Grows Green  and natural lawn care, please email myself, Ryan Anderson, at randerson@ipminstitute.org.
