Thanks to a campaign spearheaded by the Michigan Nursery & Landscape Association, Governor Snyder has proclaimed the month of May to be “Plant Michigan Green Month”.
Here’s the press release from Governor Snyder’s office:
LANSING, Michigan (May 7, 2013) – The Governor has proclaimed that during the month of May we raise awareness of the positive economic and environmental impacts that the nursery and landscape industry has had, and continues to have, in the Great Lakes State; and encourages residents to Plant Michigan Green by visiting a local retail garden center, planting a tree, having a landscape or lawn installed, or simply taking time to enjoy the beauty of Michigan’s greenery. For more information on how you can participate to help the environment, to find a professional, and to Plant Michigan Green go to www.PlantMichiganGreen.com.
Special thanks are in order to the MNLA for making this happen. They do a great job representing all of us in the “Green Industry” here in Michigan.
