Boys & Girls Clubs Feature SafeLawns
The SafeLawns spring 2012 tour makes a significant stop today, presenting to the Boys & Girls Clubs of America national convention at the Grand Hyatt Convention Center in San Diego, Ca.
Co-authors Victoria Rowell and Paul Tukey will be on hand to discuss their new book, Tag, Toss & Run, as well as the previous titles The Women Who Raise Me (Rowell) about foster care and the Organic Lawn Care Manual (Tukey) about reducing toxins in the landscape environment.
The Boys & Girls Clubs audience, which will be comprised of directors and staff from across North America, represents a unique opportunity to send the message of environmental stewardship for the sake of children back to communities nationwide. The clubs are focal points for children’s issues.
“This is an exciting opportunity,” said Tukey, who will be visiting his 14th state in the past 30 days. “I grew up in Maine and visited the Boys Club there almost every day. It played a significant part in my childhood and helped me develop a lot of skill sets that I’ve carried with me through many, many years.”
