Walker Environmental recognized for involvement in Schools in Bloom Program

On June 11, 2015, the Park in the City Committee and the Niagara Parks Commission School of Horticulture recognized Walker Environmental for their involvement in the Schools in Bloom Program at their Recognition of Excellence Ceremony held at the Gale Centre in Niagara Falls, Ontario.

Each year the Schools in Bloom Program gives schools & students across the city the opportunity to participate in rewarding activities to landscape and beautify their schoolyard areas, while continuing to learn about horticulture, the environment and improve our community as a whole. The projects are mainly student driven, giving them a sense of pride and ownership for their school and work. Students are taught responsibility, teamwork, and respect for the environment.

Walker’s annual donation of compost and mulch to the program helps 14 elementary and secondary schools in Niagara Falls participate in activities to landscape their school’s yards.
