“Healthy Turf. Healthy Kids.”™
Studies confirm there is significant value in having children spend time outdoors playing, and Project EverGreen’s “Healthy Turf. Healthy Kids.”™ has its sights set on restoring and revitalizing green spaces, including sports fields and parks, for children to play, exercise and connect.

Not only do yards, parks and sports fields promote a healthier lifestyle, they also contribute to economic growth, community development and benefit the environment.
Renovation projects are have been completed or scheduled in numerous cities across the United States in 2015 including San Antonio, Fort Worth and Round Rock, Texas; Atlanta; Cleveland; Chicago; Minneapolis; Raleigh, Durham and Greensboro, North Carolina; Milwaukee; and Portland, Oregon.
