Renewal and Remembrance
On Monday, July 17, 2017, Nufarm, a member of the National Association of Landscape Professionals and gold sponsor, participated in Renewal & Remembrance at Arlington National Cemetery. A team of 25 Nufarm employees and their families joined industry professionals from around the country to help care for this national burial ground that serves as the final resting spot for more than 400,000 military service men and women and their spouses. This year marked Nufarm’s 10th year participating in the event which has been done in honor of Mark Phipps, a Philadelphia sales rep who passed away in 2006 from pancreatic cancer.
Every July, hundreds of landscape and lawn care professionals come from across the nation to Arlington National Cemetery to participate in Renewal & Remembrance which is organized by the National Association of Landscape Professionals. They volunteer their time mulching, upgrading sprinklers, cabling and installing lightning protection for the trees, pruning, planting, liming and aerating the soil.
It was a true celebration of dedication, honor to our country’s fallen heroes and opportunity for landscape professionals across the country to give back in the most meaningful way possible for our industry.
