Anyone involved in the Garden Conservancy? here is a link http://www.gardenconservancy.org/index.pl I used to be involved but kind of drifted away from it when my business was just beginning. I noticed they have not had a tour in Phx for a couple of years now. I guess it is time to get active again and get some of my homes polished up for a tour next year. The tour is a lot of fun for both the client and us. Nothing like sitting under a tree and having people line up to tell you what a wonderful job your crew does. Did I mention they pay to do so? The clients have always seemed honored that their home was chosen for the tour and they are always willing to spend a bit more to get some projects that were on the back burner complete. The company gets lots of press, in short it is a win-win-win. I encourage everyone to get involved or start a chapter in your town. Let me know if you do. I got a woman in Tucson involved a few years ago and they have been very active many homes on their tour and sometimes two and three tours a season. Thats something to fell good about.
