Road trip!

That’s right! From April 27th to May 18th, our Midwest Grows Green programs will travel all across Greater Chicago and as far as Stoughton, Wisconsin to share how far natural lawn care has grown in the Midwest.

We will update this page with more details of our trip as they are finalized and provide regular updates using the hashtag #MGGroadtrip on Twitter. To learn more about our road trip or if you would like to help, please contact MPAC’s Ryan Anderson at See below for the planned road trip stops:
