NHLA periodically sponsors a Community Service Project, in which members gather together to execute a landscape, provide maintenance, or perform other services for a non-profit organization.
In 1989, Association volunteers and various vendors helped Landscape the Channel 11 building in Durham. In 1990-91, a member organized and led the efforts for an Earth Day project to create and landscape the Ashuelot River Park in Keene.
NHLA volunteers have helped to eradicate Glossy Buckthorn from a 23-acre site at the Tioga River Conservation Area in Belmont. We have been involved in programs such as Project Evergreen and SnowCare for Troops, which help provide landscape maintenance and snow plowing to families with a spouse or family member deployed in the Armed Forces. One year, members donated materials and labor for site work near the indoor arena at Touchstone Farm in Temple, NH. Touchstone Farm is an equestrian center that provides services to veterans suffering from Traumatic Brain Injuries and Post Traumatic Stress.
Over the years, member companies have also been involved in the PLANET Day of Service Projects usually held on Earth Day or during Earth Week. During these events, our members organize volunteer Lawn and landscape projects in local communities.
If you know of a non-profit looking for such a service, they will need to submit an application to the NHLA Board of Directors.
Upcoming projects will be listed here, in the Newsletter, and in the News section of the website.
