“This is a very important day for the district as we move forward with our Green Triangle initiative,” said Ward-Pugh. “If we are serious about being good stewards of our environment and creating sustainable solutions, this lawn mower is a logical choice to help the community garden.”
She purchased the mower for the garden in the 9th District with Neighborhood Development Funds. It mows more than an acre on a single charge.
“No gas to spill, no fumes to pollute and a lot less noise in something as basic as mowing grass,” said Ward-Pugh. “This mower is an important step towards the day when everyone will be able to breathe air free from pollution, and enjoy a quiet afternoon free from a roaring lawnmower machine. The next step is to find ways to power this mower from renewable energy sources as well as reducing the amount of grass to be mowed!”
