Get Out, Get Active and Make Your Lawn the Envy of the Neighborhood

By Alex Stackpole on 3/17/2017

Griffin Hospital will host a free talk about getting active through lawn care on Wed., March 29 at 6 p.m. at the hospital, 130 Division Street, Derby.

Are you green with envy for your neighbor's lawn? Learn the secrets of the professionals and golf courses to keep your lawn green and healthy. Experienced horticulturalist Francine Vallillo will present “All about Lawns,” providing tips on improving your lawn by selecting the right seed mix, knowing when to fertilize and how to mow properly. The talk will identify types of insects, diseases and weeds and how to prevent and control them.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention yard work is a moderate-intensity level activity, which the CDC recommends two and a half hours of each week to help prevent chronic health conditions.

This series is part of Griffin Hospital's Healthy U program, a series of free wellness talks featuring Griffin Hospital medical experts and community partners providing trusted health information and answers to questions on a wide range of topics. Light refreshments will be served.
