Kernersville, NC, July 20, 2015 — GrowinGreen, Inc., a member of the National Association of Landscape Professionals, participated in Renewal & Remembrance at Arlington National Cemetery on today.
Every July, hundreds of landscape and lawn care professionals come from across the nation to Arlington National Cemetery to participate in an event called Renewal & Remembrance which is organized by the National Association of Landscape Professionals. They volunteer their time mulching, upgrading sprinklers, cabling and installing lightning protection for the trees, pruning, planting, liming and aerating the soil.
“Our members look forward to this opportunity each year to give back to the individuals who made personal sacrifices for their country,” said Sabeena Hickman, CAE, NALP CEO. “We consider it a privilege to be able to volunteer our time and talents to improve the health and beauty of the grounds at Arlington National Cemetery, one of our nation’s most sacred places.”
Jonathan Rigsbee, owner of GrowinGreen, said, “It’s a privilege to honor those who have given their lives for our freedom. Our work today will insure the continued beauty of this sacred place and provide a tranquil environment for the families that visit loved ones here.”
NALP members were also joined by members of the Professional Grounds Management Society and the National Hispanic Landscape Alliance and the event received support from lead sponsors Caterpillar, Inc. and New Holland Construction.
