Welcome to the
Healthy Lawn Team website!
The Healthy Lawn Team (HLT) is a group of citizens in
the Madison, Wisconsin area who are concerned with the health and environmental effects
of pesticide and synthetic fertilizer use. Often people think the term pesticide means only
insecticide. Actually, pesticides include insecticides, herbicides, and fungicides; chemicals that
kill insects, weeds, and fungi.
Our goal is to reduce the use of toxic lawn chemicals through local and regional outreach, providing information on the health and environmental impacts of toxic lawn chemicals as well
as information on non-toxic lawn care. HLT is also a founding member of the National Coalition for Pesticide-Free Lawns, a coalition of environmental, consumer, and pesticide reform groups and concerned individuals with similar goals.
We believe good neighbors avoid using toxic chemicals which could spread to neighbors' yards
and homes and end up in local watersheds and lakes. Please browse our site for resources and
other information on how you can join us in creating a safe and healthy community, one lawn at
