Day of Service Articles
On April 25 about 30 lawn and tree care professionals from the Colorado Association of Lawn Care Professionals worked for the 6th year to continue renovating Riverside Cemetery in Denver.
Due to heavy rains the week of our planned Day of Service, CALCP held two days of community service this year.
We had 31 volunteers participate at Riverside Cemetery for our 4th year to improve their landscape after they lost water rights in 2002-3.
Colorado Arborists and Lawn Care Professionals hosted our 3rd workday at Riverside Cemetery to revive the landscape that has been drought stricken since 2002-03. We had 29 CALCP volunteers who worked 5 hours for a total labor output of at least $5075.00 plus equipment and at least $1030 in purchased supplies and approximately $3600 in donated supplies/materials.
CALCP returned to Riverside Cemetery, the oldest cemetery in Denver, for our 2nd Annual Day of Service on Thursday, April 22. We removed dead trees, rototilled and fertilized a large 30’X30’ bed for planting iris bulbs, rototilled, prepared and planted 3 raised beds with Plant Select Plants as demonstration gardens, and much more.
CALCP participated in our first Day of Service on Earth Day, Wednesday, April 22, 2009 at the Riverside Cemetery—the oldest cemetery in Denver.
