Alabama man stopping in Fargo to mow lawns today
An Alabama man is on a mission to cut lawns in all 50 states and he’s headed to Fargo on Saturday.
Originally slated to be in Grand Forks on Saturday morning, Rodney Smith Jr., the man behind the lawn cutting, said in a Facebook post that he had “no luck” finding lawns in Grand Forks, so he said he’d be heading down to Fargo instead.
Smith mows lawns for the elderly, disabled, single mothers and veterans as a public service for free and encourages kids to give back to their communities through community service.
Smith, a native of Bermuda, started cutting grass for people in Huntsville, Ala., in 2015. He initially wanted to cut 100 lawns before winter of 2015 but quickly hit that mark. He launched “Raising Men Lawn Care Service” shortly after and encourages kids to learn valuable skills by giving back.
In May 2017 Smith hit the road and mowed lawns in all 50 states and is at it yet again this year, having already traveled to 42 other states.
