Nufarm will continue its sponsorship of Project EverGreen‘s GreenCare for Troops program. The program is in its 18th year and provides complimentary lawn care and landscape maintenance services to military families with active duty deployed service members. The program aims to create healthy, sustainable green spaces across the country and improve the social, mental and physical well-being of military families.

Blaine Pinkerton, Nufarm Americas vice president of turf & ornamental, made the announcement and presented a $75,000 check at Project EverGreen’s recent board meeting in Raleigh, N.C. This marks the eighth year Nufarm has been the title sponsor of GreenCare for Troops.

“Nufarm is proud to continue our support of GreenCare for Troops. This program has impacted hundreds of military families over the years and will continue thanks to the great work of the Project EverGreen team and our partners across the industry,” said Pinkerton.

Since January 2023, GreenCare for Troops has added nearly 200 new volunteers and more than 1,000 military families to the program. Combined with its sister program, SnowCare for Troops, GreenCare for Troops volunteers deliver lawn care and landscape services valued at $16 million annually to military families across the United States.

688 volunteers have been with the program for more than eight years while 447 volunteers have been delivering services to military families for more than 12 years.

Nufarm’s sponsorship will be directed to activities that enhance and expand the program including increased outreach for volunteer recruitment and communications to families, volunteers and the media, as well as adding promotional and logistical resources required to grow the GreenCare for Troops database and serve more military families.

“Nufarm’s incredible ongoing support to this invaluable program is making a significant difference in the lives of military families and contractor volunteers across the country,” said Cindy Code, Project EverGreen executive director. “This ardent support has helped GreenCare for Troops build upon its success and, ultimately, bring safe and healthy yards and landscapes to families in need of relief and peace in a green setting.”

In addition to Nufarm as the title sponsor, platinum partners include Toro, SiteOne Landscape Supply, Amguard Environmental Technologies, Heritage Landscape Supply Group and Boss Snowplow and silver partner Arborjet/Ecologel. Affiliate partners include the Connecticut Grounds Keepers Association and the Florida Nursery, Growers and Landscape Association. The program is endorsed to its membership by the National Association of Landscape Professionals.
