While this weather is inspiring an early round of lawn care around Ohio, science is pointing to the dangers of some widely used fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides. On the other side of Lake Erie, Ontario officials have taken that science to heart and are now one year into a ban on many of those chemicals. That ban is one of the topics scientists, policy makers and environmentalists will take up at the Greening The Community conference in Cleveland this weekend. Wednesday morning at 9, join host Dan Moulthrop for a conversation about your lawn and what it means to "go green."

Guests

Warren Porter professor of zoology and environmental toxicology, University of Wisconsin, Madison
Jan Karsperski Chief Executive Officer, Ontario College of Family Physicians
Jim King Senior Vice President, Corporate Affairs, Scott's MiracleGro
Alec McClennan Founder, Good Nature Organic Lawn Care
