The Harvest Group pioneers program for landscape business growth

September 23, 2013 -  By

The Harvest Group launched the Harvest Academy, an online program designed to help landscape business owners and managers overcome challenges involved with growing a landscape business.

The Harvest Academy is the brainchild of Bill Arman and Ed Laflamme, LIC, who bring more than 80 years of hands-on experience running landscape businesses.  In that time, Arman and Laflamme saw many businesses—mainly run by owners straight out of school—failing because they didn’t have the know-how or tools to run a successful business. The Harvest Academy is Arman and Laflamme’s way of doing something about it.

“We’ve been in their boots, and have personally experienced the same challenges. We know how tough it is to operate a landscape business,” Arman said. “But it doesn’t have to be that hard. The academy provides landscape owners with all the information they need to grow and own a profitable company, without being a slave to it.”

The Harvest Academy comprises proven business insight for landscape companies of all sizes, including start-ups, companies ready to move to the next level and even owners who are thinking about selling.

The information is broken down into eight sections for members to learn at their own pace and choose the subjects they need to learn about at any given time.

Additionally, the Harvest Academy features:

  • A community forum where members can ask questions and get answers from Arman, Laflamme and fellow members;
  • an Industry Leaders section where top leaders reveal their secrets to becoming successful, along with lessons they learned to help owners grow and improve their organizations from just “doing ok” to becoming “best in class;”
  • guidebooks and tools with every lesson; and
  • video lessons.
