Landscapes 2015 attendees to volunteer in Louisville

October 8, 2015 -  By

The National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) will hold its annual volunteer service event (formerly known as PLANET Gives Back), on Oct. 21, during this year’s Landscapes 2015 convention in Louisville, Ky.nalp-landscapes-2015

Dozens of NALP member volunteers will focus the majority of their efforts this year on St. Vincent de Paul—one of the oldest social service charities in Louisville—where they will be installing trees, adding landscape beds, improving playgrounds on campus, doing general maintenance functions and repairing a set of steps to create a safer exit from the building.

Volunteers also will be working at the Shelby Traditional Academy, installing raised planter boxes built by students at Cincinnati State Technical and Community College. Once installed, the boxes will be filled with cold crops.

“This Louisville project further amplifies NALP’s history of giving back across the country,” said Mike Mason, community service project lead. “This event provides an opportunity for our members to beautify another community, showcase their skills, improve the environment and solidify partnerships with community organizations.”

Positions are still open for volunteers. For more information about the community service event or to register, visit landscapeprofessionals.org.
