PLANET announced a partnership with JP Horizons to promote the “Come Alive Outside” movement, which was started by JP Horizons to get the public excited about getting outdoors and enjoying a healthy lifestyle.

Come Alive Outside is a grassroots program that will provide a platform — and all the necessary tools — for landscape contractors to engage in their communities in a way that they’ve never done before: through a combination of community service, outreach, educational, and recreational events. It will give PLANET members an opportunity to speak about the benefits that they, as landscape contractors, bring to the public, and it will engage youth, supporting PLANET’s initiative to develop a strong and viable workforce for the future.

“PLANET is really excited by the idea of helping landscape companies engage the public and promote the idea of getting outside and enjoying great landscapes,” said Norman Goldenberg, Landscape Industry Certified, PLANET president.
