Water Conservation
Description of Action: 
Irrigation & Stormwater is collected through drainage pipes that feed into ponds. We use these pond for irrigating the property. We do not currently track how much water this saves us over the course of the year.
Provide Environmentally Preferable Products Services
Description of Action: 
We are the largest nursery on the East Coast that specializes in native plants for environmental restoration. However we don't just do this as a business. We often donate plants, materials, and our time to boy scouts, girl scouts, and other groups who are installing rain gardens, pollinator habitats, cleaning up parks and forests, or restoring salt marshes or other wetlands.
Support the Well-Being of Your Employees
Description of Action: 
We have a half-acre community garden on our property for our employees to use. This past year our employees grew corn, peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, watermelons, cantelopes, squash and zucchinis which they shared with the entire work staff. This promoted healthier eating among our all of our employees. It is difficult to track how many sick days or dollars this would save us.
Be Prepared for Emergencies
Description of Action: 
We have 2 generators on the property which power our office and greenhouse systems so that we can still power the business in case of power outages.
