Food Not Lawns is a growing movement (pun definitely intended) and belief that replacing lawn with edible, native plants creates thriving and sustainable habitats for all creatures, reduces our carbon footprint (less pollution from lawn mowers, less toxic pesticide and fertilizer runoff), and supports rainwater catchment and reuse. Lawns require a huge input of energy and resources to maintain, return very little aesthetically, and reduce by upwards of 45 million acres the habitat of countless species of insects, birds, butterflies and other wildlife.
