Crew Member Spotlight: Rosa Flores
Graduate from Verde Landscape Training Program Grows Independent Business
Rosa Flores loves to plant. Since she began working as a Verde Landscape crew member in October 2016, she expressed how much she gets to learn while on the job. While working on rain gardens—Rosa’s favorite landscape project—crew members get training on watershed health and hands-on experience with sustainable methods for maintaining clean water.
Let Us Build Cully Park Meets Crowdfunding Goals
The Verde Landscape training program makes a deep investment in each Verde Landscape crewmember through classroom and on-the-job training. As illustrated by our most recent graduate Jesus Nunez Jr., the training program goes beyond teaching crewmembers the skills needed to perform our specialized services; it can also spark entrepreneurial inspiration.
Cully Park construction is on track to complete phase one later this fall. We will then allow time for plantings to establish roots, and open the park to the public in late spring/early summer 2018 (really, it depends on when the rains stop).
