At Terracare Associates, we are committed to giving back to the communities in which we live and work. Throughout the year, we volunteer our time and resources to local nonprofit organizations and community events. Here are a few of the projects we are proud to have been a part of over the past year.
Over the past year, Terracare has donated materials and time to create an outdoor learning garden at Montclair. The garden features 32 raised plant beds as well as an area to grow pumpkins, squash, melons and gourds. The goal of this project is to provide students with hands-on learning experiences that align with grade level standards while also teaching them new skills and responsibility.
On April 17, volunteers from TCA continued our annual spring cleaning tradition at the memorial honoring those affected by the events of April 20, 1999 at Columbine High School. We are honored to continue to donate time and materials to keep the memorial looking beautiful year after year.
On April 22, we teamed up with CH2M and the City of Centennial to host an Earth Day Event including a plant sale benefiting Project C.U.R.E. All plants were donated by TCA and CH2M and profits from the sale went directly to Project C.U.R.E. In addition to the plant sale, TCA provided free gardening demonstrations and activities for kids.
Terracare took part in Earth Day activities at the Intuit Corporate Campus in Mountain View, California on April 20. TCA offered educational seminars on beneficial bugs, drought tolerant plant material and irrigation efficiencies. In addition, one of our staff members even dressed up like a bee!
