Educational Concerns for Hunger Organization was founded as Educational Concerns for Haiti Organization by businessman and philanthropist Richard Dugger as a method of providing much-needed agricultural training for aid workers and missionaries. Throughout its 31-year history, the interdenominational nonprofit has grown to house a nursery of tropical plants, a 7.5-acre farm, and a resource center of over 4,000 books and publications centered around providing sustainable food chains and livelihoods in poverty-stricken tropical areas. Celebrating its grand mission of training those who help the hungry and the poor, ECHO introduces visitors to rainforest climates and innovative urban gardening techniques in its Global Farm and preserves rare species while educating the public on complicated exchange rates at the seed bank. Each purchase made helps actualize this mission.
ECHO's volunteers promote food security in tropical and arid regions throughout the world with over 75,000 hours of work each year, and the hardworking 51-person staff of horticulturists, researchers, and program directors teach aid workers and the general public with a variety of workshops, internships, and guided tours on the verdant fields and well-tended nurseries of its bustling campus.
Lawn Doctor's roots lead back to the mid 1960s, when friends Bob Magda and Tony Giordano took on the endeavor of reviving uncared for lawns in their hometown of Matawan, New Jersey. Their local business has since blossomed into a national franchise with more than 500 locations across the United States, each adhering to the mission of enhancing lawns' allure with time-tested techniques, dedicated customer service, and dabs of foundation makeup.
Before Lawn Doctor's assiduous staffers unleash expertise on swards, they arrive at the client's home for a complimentary consultation gauging each lawn's specific needs. Grass gurus can thicken turf with their patented Turf Tamer power seeder and foster healthy growth for grass, trees, and shrubs with fertilizer. Uninvited lawn assailants—such as crickets, ants, and grazing neighbors—shudder at the sight of Lawn Doctor's pest-control experts. The company also helps to preserve Mother Nature's receding hairline with organic lawn treatments and natural, eco-friendly products.
From landscaping to fertilization to pest control, the team at Florida Evergreen Landscape and Lawn Care caters to your yard's every need. Certified arborists are on hand to help with landscape and lawn design, and maintenance technicians keep shrubs and flower beds in line with trimming and edging services. The team also installs and maintains irrigation systems to keep yards looking as green as a seasick stowaway.
