Nufarm continues its sponsorship of Project EverGreen‘s GreenCare for Troops program. The program, which is celebrating its 16th year in 2022, provides complimentary lawn care and landscape maintenance services to military families with active duty deployed service members.

Along with its sister program, SnowCare for Troops, GreenCare for Troops volunteers deliver lawn care and landscape services valued at $2.5 million annually to military families across the U.S.

We all know men and women who gave their time, their strength, and in some cases their lives for this nation we call home,” said Blaine Pinkerton, Nufarm Americas vice president of ornamental. “It’s an honor to serve those serving our country, and through this program, we can show our thanks to them.”
