LandCare Care’s About Safety
This summer LandCare’s Portland East branch in Fairview celebrated two years without a recordable safety incident. That’s an amazing record, and not one our team takes for granted. They work hard at making safety a part of every team member’s consciousness. And it’s not only because they are intent on breaking the standing safety record of 1,056 days. It’s because one of LandCare’s top priorities is to send our team members home every day the same way they arrived – safe, healthy and happy. Recently we sat down with Portland East branch manager, Aaron Jacobs, to find out the secret to his team’s success.
LandCare Celebrates First CommunityCare Day
Greenbelt, MD –This month Staff from LandCare’s Support Center joined the Baltimore Branch team to renovate the nature garden at Buddy Attick Lake Park during their first annual CommunityCare Day.
Buddy Attick Park is a favorite venue for community picnics and offers residents playgrounds, walking trails and fishing. They also have a native plant identification area that is used by many school groups for learning and fun. Lately the native plants have been pushed out by invasive species, leaving the beds choked with weeds and the walkways by the lake overgrown and inaccessible.
