Use Community Green Space Responsibly: Your Yard is Your Safe Space

The TurfMutt Foundation reminds families that nature starts right outside your back door. Let the proven benefits of green space give us a break from being cooped up inside and relieve the stresses of these times. Listen to the birds. Watch the trees. Curl your toes in the grass. Work outside planting, or even mow the lawn.

Get Outside: De-stress Outdoors Even While Social Distancing, But Be Responsible

    Keep at least 6 feet away from people you don’t live with

Unwind. Find solace. Sit and listen to nature. 
Plant something. Mow the yard. Trim a bush or tree.
