This year, with the increased popularity of Nextdoor.com, I was hoping I might have more of an opportunity to reach a few people with my campaign. I should say, to reach more people than those who have been unable to read my mind, since I haven’t done anything at all so far.
A couple of days ago, on Nextdoor, I put up a message asking if there were any folks who wanted to start a dialog about alternatives to conventional lawn treatment.
I got one response.
Not exactly a groundswell.
I’m appealing to you all to make some suggestions. I’ve considered contacting a few of the organic lawn services in the area to see if they would be willing to do a demonstration yard in our neighborhood, with the understanding that I would publicize it throughout the neighborhood.
I prefer the soft sell; the gradual assimilation of new information and new ideas, rather than scare tactics and being judgmental.
I’d like to see people observing other techniques that work, and other affordable solutions.
I’d love to hear some great ideas and recommendations.
