I have been approached by a local elementary school to help improve the visual appeal of the grounds. They are offering more than 20 volunteers once a month for labor, Home Depot will provide all of the supply's (mulch, fert, irrigation parts and plants).This school is 3-4 years old and the irrigation system was shut down due to lack of funds to maintain. The county does the mowing and that is it...for 3-4 YEARS! My fert/pest and irrigation subcontractors have agreed to help and donate their equipment (3 tank trucks, 6 powered spreaders and 6 backpack sprayers, basically everything we would need) We will start by defining and weeding the beds then pruning and replacement of dead/thin plants. While the second group tackles the irrigation. And once that is complete everyone apply the fert/apps. Myself and my subs will help the project along by donating our time on the first sat morning of each month to oversee the volunteers. And we even have breakfast provided by the Waffle House. Now there is no compensation for myself or my subs this is a community project and it is only my time that is lost for a good cause. Now for your input, What do you feel are the pro's and con's (aside from liability) of being involved with this project. Also the school will have a full page about this project with credit to myself and the subs in the yearbook, and a press release will also be issued.
