Wouldn’t it be nice to enjoy a fall season with less raking and noisy leaf-blowing in your neighborhood and fewer leaf piles clogging the streets?

Wouldn’t it be satisfying to know you were nourishing your property with valuable leaf nutrients instead of treating them like garbage to be hauled away?

Grab your landscaper & let them know about this informative event.

Sponsored by Sustainable Westchester in conjunction with the Eastchester Environmental Committee 

Mulch Mowing Workshop, Saturday Nov. 5th, 3PM, in New Rochelle

Free Mulch Mowing Workshop will be presented in New Rochelle at Twin Lakes Park, North Ave. in front of the New Rochelle High School.

Click poster (below) to read the details. Open to all residents and landscapers county-wide.

Rather than raking, bagging, or transporting fall leaves offsite this year, consider mulching, a sustainable alternative that actually benefits lawns and gardens! The City of New Rochelle in partnership with Greenburgh Nature Center will host this free 'how to' workshop.
Join us for a live demonstration by professional landscaper, get your questions answered, and see how easy it is to put those leaves to work to enrich your soil, grass and flowers! 


Adopted by City Council in 2013, the “Love ‘Em and Leave ‘Em” campaign promotes mulch mowing and its advantages: 
A healthy property: Mulching recycles nutrients into the soil to feed lawns & plants, provides a free natural fertilizer, and helps retain moisture.
Savings of time and effort: Mulching in place is easier and faster than raking or blowing leaves.

Helping the environment: Leaf piles block streets and traffic, clog storm drains, and result in excess nutrient runoff (phosphorus & nitrogen), polluting our waterways. Transporting and disposing of grass and leaves as yard waste wastes energy and contributes to pollution, too.
Additional information is available on the City’s website at newrochelleny.com/leaf or by calling 914.235.4029.
