The New Hampshire Landscape Association has again approved a partnership agreement with the National Landcare Network, known as PLANET, by participating in a nationwide public space beautification effort known as PLANET Day of Service. This year steps up the New Hampshire landscape enhancement commitment, centered on Earth Week 2013.
PLANET Day of Service is an annual opportunity for green industry professionals across the country to join for a day of giving back to their communities through volunteer landscape enhancement and tree care projects. Such efforts showcase the environmental stewardship that lives within our industry, bringing NH landscaper’s good deeds to the surface. In the process NHLA Members are branded as good corporate partners within their respective communities, another reason for consumers to choose an NHLA Member company for their landcare needs.
Those six NHLA member companies organized volunteer lawn and landscape projects in communities across the state and uploaded the projects on www.planetdayofservice.org, which provided a central point for listings of NH Day of Service volunteer opportunities.
This year, with generous financial support from the Gilford, NH Rotary Club, NHLA members and the public have a unique opportunity to directly assist one of the areas hardest hit by Hurricane Sandy through the a well-coordinated Planet Day of Service event.
The Village of Lindenhurst, New York, suffered some of the most damage of any town in Suffolk County. Since the storm hit the Lindenhurst, New York, Rotary Club, the members have been doing a terrific job of servicing their town, which suffered severe flooding, The two Rotary Clubs plan to team up April 12 to 14, traveling to Lindenhurst , purchasing lawn and garden tools, equipment, supplies, food and coordinating transportation and housing for New Hampshire volunteers in landscape clean-up efforts.
