Homeowners throughout the Chesapeake Bay region can make a significant impact in protecting the bay, according to a new educational campaign by the Mid-Atlantic Regional Water Quality Program (MAWQP), which is funded by the USDA’s Cooperative State Research, Education, and Extension Service (CSREES).
MAWQP partnered with the Scotts Miracle-Gro Company and the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments to create the “Healthy Lawns, Clean Water” campaign to educate homeowners about proper fertilizer application techniques to reduce nutrient loss.
“Every one of us can help protect the environment, and it starts in our own backyards,” said Gale Buchanan, USDA under secretary for Research, Education and Economics. “This campaign leverages the power of the Cooperative Extension System and Land-Grant University System research to educate local homeowners with the best available science-based solutions for keeping the environment clean.”

Nearly 30 years ago, Christopher Gardner was a single, homeless father. He often spent his nights in a church shelter or in the bathroom of the Oakland Rapid Transit station. Today, he is a self-made millionaire, both president and CEO of Gardner Rich & Co –the Chicago-based brokerage firm he founded in 1987, and the benefactor of others whose lives offer unimaginable obstacles to success.
The amazing story of Gardner’s life was published as an autobiography, The Pursuit of Happyness, by Amistad/Harper Collins on May 23, 2006, and is also the subject of a movie with the same title, starring Will Smith as Gardner released by Columbia Pictures in December 2006.
