So "Eat Local" doesn't truly mean local.Schumacher must be turning in his grave.
When the US drought hits who will be smiling then.
Lets all have a useless green, sterile area needing lots of water, moss killer, fertilizer and noisy, polluting lawn mowers instead of a garden of eden.

William Reed is right about grass, lawns and lawn mowers. Lawns should be old business by now. As a step for the Drummondville city council to save face, they should start by reversing the amount of lawn to 30% or less.

Sorry Drummondville city council, but you are sooo far behind the times.

As an example, some cities have set up compost piles made up of grass clippings and allow citizens to come and get compost, sometimes for free. But again this is behind the times. My friend Rex would never allow such compost on his garden because of all the chemicals used on lawns are still in the compost.
