Let’s celebrate organic lawns! Winning entries will be published along with free coloring pages!

For our haiku contest, poems must contain either the word “grass“or the word “lawn” (but other than that, be creative!)

Haiku is a poetry form originating in Japan that has three lines. The first line has 5 syllables, the second has 7 syllables, and the last has 5. Traditionally, haikus focus on nature and they do not have to rhyme.

Submit poems to AskDEP@montgomerycountymd.gov by 4/20 at midnight. Winners will be announced on Earth Day, 4/22.

    Butterfly lands near
    Waves crest in a green grass sea
    Peaceful bliss of home
