"Gimme Green" - Documentary on our Obsession with Lawns
In a recent article published by the Gainesville Sun, two University of Florida Documentary Institute graduates (Isaac Brown and Eric Flagg) have created a documentary on American's obsession with lush lawns. The documentary airs on the Sundance Channel August 28, 29, 31 and September 2.

This documentary is being featured at Paynes Prairie Reserve (just south of Gainesville), which is in the process of "Going Native" to reduce their need for water and maintenance. For a list of suggested native plants visit Florida Wildflower Foundation.
