Give Back at GIE+EXPO

PLANET Gives BackFrom the educational classes to the vast range of product specialists, it’s easy to see what you can get out of attending GIE+EXPO. (For tips on getting the most from the show, read my other post.)

But, have you thought about what you could give back while you’re in Louisville, Kentucky?

A group of 75 PLANET members are coming together Wednesday for PLANET’s annual Give Back project. They will be enhancing the Home of the Innocents, a nonprofit shelter and pediatric convalescent center that provides services to those facing severe crisis.

These industry volunteers will do what they do best — beautify the grounds. They will plant trees, spruce up the playground and plant cold crops in raised vegetable beds.

GIE/GIC can be an extremely busy few days, so it’s refreshing to see people finding ways to give of their time.

The Attachments Idea Book
Landscapers use a variety of attachments for doing everything from snow removal to jobsite cleanup, and regardless of how often they are used, every landscaper has a favorite attachment.
