Does Giving Back Make Us Prosperous?

In Project EverGreen’s mission to preserve and enhance green spaces where we live, work and play, we organize local teams of landscapers, individuals and group volunteers to join in donating pro bono restorations to parks, sports fields, schools and charities, to provide environmental, economic, and social benefits to communities.   
After several years of mobilizing our volunteer partners, we’re increasingly inspired by their generosity. For example, our professional landscaper volunteers enable all of our projects by donating their time, money, and materials. They often describe themselves as being honored to be able to contribute whatever success they’ve built as an […]

Why Project EverGreen Matters

When Hurricane Sandy left Liberty and Ellis islands under several feet of saltwater, management at national parks was inundated with offers of help. Like most organizations, the national park service had been hit by cutbacks and no longer had the expertise to assess the situation. That’s why Project EverGreen was the perfect fit. In the video below, John Hnedak, deputy superintendent of Liberty Island and Ellis Island, explains why Project EverGreen was selected to help restore the 9/11 Memorial Grove.

Restoring Sacred Ground

Project EverGreen mobilizes partners and volunteers to restore Liberty Island’s 9/11 Memorial Grove that was devastated by Hurricane Sandy.

The Statue of Liberty was dedicated in October 1886 and served to welcome immigrants seeking freedom in the United States. In 2012, 126 years later, almost to the day, Hurricane Sandy left Liberty Island under five feet of salt water destroying the trees planted there to honor the victims of 9/11.

“This is the Statue of Liberty, one of the most recognized landmarks in the world,” says Brian Tauscher, owner of Artisan Garden Landscapes. “To be able to say that […]
