Community Involvement

PLANET Day of Service:

nalp-logoThe PLANET Day of Service is an annual charity event to allow us to give back to our local community.  It is a one-day volunteer project organized at the national level by The Professional Landcare Network with thousands of volunteers participating.  Each year, volunteers, including the company’s ownership, management, and field personnel, help local residents in need with various spring beautification and grounds maintenance projects, and improve public spaces within Middleboro.  These green spaces are a vital component to our planet, so improving and maintaining them is a great opportunity to have a big impact on our community.

This year (2016) was our seventh year hosting the Day of Service. On April 22, 2016, our crew of volunteers worked on five separate projects in Middleboro and Taunton to help improve the lives of some local residents, and revitalize public spaces. Roughly 175 hours were volunteered! Greener Horizon also donated materials such as loam, crushed stone, and bark mulch. Lastly, thank you to the following for their support: Olson’s Greenhouses, Inc.Spillane’s Nursery Corp., Grant’s Rental, Dave’s Diner, Stoneforge Tavern and Publick House, 99 Restaurants (Bridgewater) Dunkin’ DonutsHannaford Supermarkets and to the town of Middleboro; Middleborough Town Manager and Project EverGreen.
