Lawns to Lettuce Success Story: Terry Myer
Stats: Terry grew and donated 2,055 pounds of produce in the first year after converting part of her lawn to edible garden beds.
"After attending SCD's Lawns to Lettuce workshop I was HOOKED! It was so easy to grow food instead of grass. The experts at SCD had answers for every question and solutions to my excuses." -Terry Myer | Marysville WA resident
And now, Terry is getting positive feedback from her class attendees.
Regarding the Lawns to Lettuce Fall & Winter Gardening Prep class, "I'm so excited to begin my own gardening even though I have a very small area to use. I currently use the food bank, so this will make things much easier on me as well and fresher vegetables. Thanks so much for having these classes available to the community. Such a great resource. Love love love the idea." - Karen Groff Hendricks.
