Bee Happy Lawns
More effective for less
Bee Happy Lawns, a project of Turtle Lake Refuge, is a service providing organic lawn and garden care within our city and county. We offer organic compost tea, compost top dressing, and wild weed harvesting parties for yards and gardens, and parks. Locally made compost tea is a liquid fertilizer made from finished garden compost and worm castings. Compost tea is packed full of microbes that help your plants grow. Our focus is on creating healthy soil. When the underground ecosystem is vital and thriving, the grass and garden plants grow to their beauty and potential. The benefits of organic land stewardship practices are many! As a community we can lessen our toxic impacts on the honey bee population and local pollinators, reduce our impact in creating the "dead zones" discovered in the oceans largely due to petroleum-based chemical fertilizer run-off, and especially promote the health of our children.
Bee Happy will gladly apply organic compost tea on your lawns and gardens!

Fort Lewis College Students applying the first compost tea application to Brookside Park in Durango, Colorado!
Turtle Lake Refuge along with dedicated City Council members, staff and volunteers from our community helped establish the movement of Chemical-Free parks in Durango. For several years, Turtle Lake Refuge collaborated with the City of Durango's Park and Recreation Department by volunteering our efforts in applying compost tea to Brookside Park, setting up bat boxes and leading weed harvesting parties. Currently, the City of Durango now has another park added to the list of Chemical-Free parks - Pioneer Park. The initial projects have lead into our organic lawn care business called Grassroots. Through Grassroots, we teach tolerance and value of the local weeds as well as nourish the root systems of businesses’ and homeowners’ lawns through applying compost tea.
The compost tea not only provides food for the lawn, but it also creates a healthy ecosystem in the soil, promoting life, aeration, and efficient distribution of minerals and vitamins for the plants and microorganisms underground.
