Tom Christopher, landscape sustainability consultant, speaker and writer for 20 years will the guest speaker at the September Meet Your Greens, Middletown’s Green Drinks, which is sponsored by our friends at the Rockfall Foundation and takes place from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., Sept. 21, 2010, at The Cardinals Nest, 129 Church Street Middletown, CT.

Tom Christopher

Tom, a graduate of the New York Botanical Garden’s School of Professional Horticulture, is a former garden columnist for Horticulture and House & Garden magazine and a contributing editor at Martha Stewart Living. He has also contributed to NYBG’s Green Perspectives blog. Tom will share his recent work experimenting with low mow/low fertilizer/no pesticide lawns.

“Lawns are the low hanging fruit when it comes to improving your sustainability and reducing your carbon footprint.  Some turfgrasses recently released on to the market can provide an acceptable lawn while demanding only 1/4 or less as much mowing as conventional turfs, and which thrive in most situations in Connecticut with no summertime irrigation and little or no fertilization.”
