As you mow, leave your grass clippings on the grass. The clippings which are 80% water and contain nitrogen help to water and fertilize your lawn.
SHOW UP to voice your opposition to these three proposed NC bills:
- HB 358 banning trans youth from participating in sports teams and athletics,
- SB 514 prohibiting transgender young people from receiving trans-affirming care and penalizing medical professionals who provide transition-related care, requiring teachers, administrators, and counselors to “out” transgender students to their parents, and protecting “conversion therapy” (attempting to change someone’s sexual orientation or gender identity).
- SB 515 allowing any medical provider to refuse to do anything they object to on the basis of conscience.
