  • Lawn Busters is a volunteer program where volunteers assist a resident in mowing his or her lawn. 
  • Lawn mowing can be challenging for individuals who have physical limitations. Volunteering with Lawn Busters is a great way for you to make a difference in the lives of these residents.
  • Your assistance helps individuals remain in their homes, prevents injuries and encourages community connections.

The Lawn Busters program helps make Strathcona County a welcoming, inclusive and livable community.

Join Lawn Busters today. A resident in your community is waiting for your help.
