Regional website promotes lawn to garden resources for residents and professionals
StopWaste recently launched a new regional website, the Lawn-to-Garden Marketplace at www.lawntogarden.org. The Marketplace is a one-stop shop for home gardeners and landscape professionals to find the tools and resources to convert lawns sustainably with sheet mulch. Visitors to the website can:
- Read more about the benefits of sheet mulching
- Learn how to sheet mulch
- Find out about rebates and discounts on materials
- Get inspired by examples of local lawn conversions
- Use the searchable vendor list to find cardboard, compost, and mulch.
The website was developed with support of Proposition 84 grant funds from the California Department of Water Resources and in partnership with regional vendors and water agencies. In 2015, StopWaste received this grant to leverage work in Alameda County and regionalize the existing countywide sheet mulch stakeholder and vendor network. In addition to the website, activities will include in-store displays, trainings on sheet mulching for compost and mulch vendors, and workshops for landscape professionals.
