Volunteers are prepped and ready for the fourth annual PLANET Gives Back project, a volunteer service event held Oct. 22 at the Green Industry Conference in Louisville, Kentucky.
Approximately 75 PLANET volunteers will work at Meyzeek Middle School, a public school in Louisville that focuses on math, science and technology.
This project site was identified through YouthBuild Louisville, an education, job training and leadership program organization designed to help young adults realize their potential.
PLANET Gives Back volunteers will spend their afternoon landscaping the school grounds, performing maintenance on perimeter fences and beautifying the front entrances with the use of raised planter beds. In addition to work at Meyzeek Middle School, PLANET Gives Back will also work at the neighboring St. Vincent de Paul, one of the oldest social service charities in Louisville, where they will be installing a number of trees.
PLANET Gives Back is approved for PLANET Landscape Industry Certified recertification at 0.5 CEU per hour of volunteerism completed.
