Enter to Win a Free Electric Lawnmower!

Wednesday, October 18, 2023 - 12:00am to 11:45pm

While grass mowing season is winding down, don’t forget the opportunity to enter for a chance to win a free mulching mower! The drawing to select a winner will be held October 18, 2023. This will be awarded as part of the “Raise the Blade” campaign, which encourages landowners in the Lake Champlain basin to raise their lawnmower blades to 3”, to leave clippings on the ground to decompose in place, and to cut only ⅓ of the length of the grass blades in any single cutting. These practices, when done together, can help protect water quality over time by increasing soil health and minimizing stormwater runoff. To learn more, watch a 2-minute educational video and enter for a chance to win the mulching mower.
