Girard Environmental Services, Inc. – a full-service landscaping company based in Seminole County, Fla. – recently donated more than $5,000 worth of landscaping services to Midway Safe Harbor Center, an after-school program. The Girard team installed irrigation and stone pavers, and provided arbor and landscaping care to the community center’s 10,000-sq.-ft. outdoor garden classroom.

“The landscaping infrastructure that Girard Environmental donated is priceless because it helps us maintain our garden project, which functions as a learning tool to help teach kids about horticulture,” said Pat Cucci, executive director of the Midway Safe Harbor Center, which also serves as a 21st Century Community Learning Center in Seminole County.

Nearly 180 students work on Midway Safe Harbor Center’s garden throughout the year – and grow everything from onions and corn to pineapples and red peppers.

“We are happy to help give Midway Safe Harbor Center’s garden classroom a much-needed landscape facelift,” said Alan Wing, vice president of operations at Girard Environmental Services. “Most of our employees live in Sanford, and we take great pride in this community.”
