Greencare for Troops
by National Gardening Association Editors
Greencare for Troops is a nationwide outreach program coordinated by the non-profit organization Project Evergreen, whose mission is to preserve and enhance green space in communities across the country. Greencare for Troops connects local green industry professionals and volunteers with the families of men and women serving our country in the armed forces.
By providing free lawn and landscape maintenance services to military families whose major breadwinner is on active duty away from home, life is made a little easier for these families who bear such a heavy burden, and it allows those at home who benefit from the service of our soldiers a way to give back. So far, Greencare volunteers have provided help to thousands of military families.
