What is the Rye Healthy Yard Program?
The Rye Healthy Yard Program seeks to promote awareness about the health and environmental benefits of using natural landscaping practices in our community. Learn more about how to transform your yard into a natural and open space that is healthy for all, and take the Rye Healthy Yard Pledge.
healthy is good
◆ Good for the community: Rye is home to many families; young children are especially vulnerable to the effects of chemicals and other pollution.
◆ Good for the environment: As part of the Blind Brook Watershed, our storm water directly impacts an important estuary that supports all kinds of wildlife.
◆ Good for your wallet: Natural yard care can be less expensive than conventional yard care. Get off the spray & pay treadmill and buy only what you need, when you need it.
