Leadership in our industry is also an important part of our focus as a company. This focus allows us to learn from some of the best and brightest companies around the country and to be one of those leaders as well. We are involved in many groups, committees and events.
Our involvement is both at the local and national level. We are regular contributors at the national conference through presentations and facilitation. Our contribution also extends to the education of future industry leaders. We work directly with a number of Horticulture, Landscape Architecture and Landscape Contracting Programs around the country. In addition, HighGrove has also endowed a scholarship through the Academic Excellence Foundation.
The Green Industry, just as any other, is affected by local and national events and trends. Our leadership and participation with these groups will grow as we build and adapt our company for the future.
