Janet Moyer Landscaping Receives Humanitarian Certificate From California Landscape Contractors Association

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - February 10, 2011) - Janet Moyer Landscaping (JML), a full service landscaping company in San Francisco, has received a "Humanitarian" certificate for its work in designing and installing the first "teaching garden" for children at a public library in San Francisco. The recognition was made at the California Contractors Association 2010 Trophy Awards presentation in Anaheim, Calif., and recognizes landscape contractors who donate more than half the total labor or materials to a project benefitting a worthy cause.

Janet Moyer Landscaping designed and constructed planting beds, installed a state of the art "smart" drip irrigation system, provided oversight of volunteers working on the project, and obtained contributions from their supplier partners including Ewing Irrigation, Toro Irrigation Products, Broadmoor Landscape Supply and Sierra Point Lumber. 

"Our partnership with the library provided a worthwhile platform for us to express our commitment to designing, building and maintaining sustainable landscapes in a beneficial community project," says Janet Moyer, president of the company.

Through its Green Stacks program, the San Francisco Public Library is dedicated to helping the City go green through environmental initiatives and partnerships and library programs, exhibitions and information. The first teaching garden at the Mission Library is an example of this enterprise.

Lia Hillman, Interim Children's Room Manager of the Mission Branch Library, organized the partnership with Janet Moyer Landscaping, Garden for the Environment, and the Mission Greenbelt Project to produce a "teaching garden" as a new resource that offers the Mission's community the opportunity to learn about growing food sustainably in an urban environment. It also provides local schools with a resource for hands-on science lessons and other potential partnerships with programs such as Eat Ur Veggies at Mission High School.
