National GreenCare for Troops Awareness Week
June 11-17, 2017
A managed lawn and yard provides vital space for military personnel and veterans to recover and re-connect with their families. Delivering the services needed to create the green spaces that provide military families and post 9/11 service-connected wounded/disabled veterans with peace of mind and freedom to heal is what Project EverGreen’s GreenCare for Troops is all about.
GreenCare for Troops provides complimentary basic lawn care and landscape services to these deserving individuals. From back yards for service dogs to run in to green gardens for disabled veterans to reflect in, thriving lawns, trees and plants go beyond the aesthetics; they provide individuals with the ability to actively participate in creating a greener, healthier, cooler Earth.
As the program celebrates its 11th year Project EverGreen recognizes National GreenCare for Troops Awareness Week. To help our volunteers promote their participation in the program we have created a Promotional Tool Box volunteers can use to promote their participation and mission of the initiative.
We encourage you to share information about your involvement with GreenCare for Troops with the local media, civic and veterans groups in your community.
Project EverGreen would also like to recognize The Toro Company and Nufarm for their support of the program.
Thank you again for your participation and support of this valuable program.

Listen to our recent interview on Minnesota Military Radio
"I just wanted to tell you how grateful I am for what Project EverGreen does for military families. My husband is deployed and after weeks of looking for help with my lawn, I was fortunate to come across your website. I am so pleased with the quick response from my assigned volunteer. He was very kind when we spoke on the phone and his team was out here within a week. Left my yard spotless."
