We’re always in the pursuit for a beautiful lawn, but in our pursuit for this beauty we do some not so good things to the water, soil, and environment.
Today, we will visit Glenstone, a private non-profit estate museum in Potomac, Maryland, that decided to change over their 16 acres of landscape to become completely organic. Founders, Mitch and Emily Rales realized they had a duty to the environment and the people that visited their estate museum to keep their land as healthy as possible.
In this episode, we talk to Paul Tukey, founder of safelawn.org and the brains behind converting Glenstone from chemical lawn care to organic lawn care. As an advocate for landscape sustainability and toxic pesticide reduction, Paul Tukey was the perfect person to take on the task of converting this 16 acre estate. Paul, not only helped change Glenstone, but also convinced legislators in D.C. to convert a portion of the National Mall into an organic area.
In the kitchen, Chef Nathan whips up another delicious recipe, this time in the form of Lemongrass tea with fresh ginger and mint.
