Community Stewardship Award
This award recognizes a company and/or project that demonstrates leadership through dedication and contribution to the good of the community. Community stewardship is demonstrated by carrying out and/or participating in community service projects. These projects may be industry related (improving or maintaining public or school gardens, other lawn/landscape projects, etc.), or non-industry related activities (walk/run, raising funds for the community, providing services).

The 2017 Community Stewardship ELITE Award recipient is Terracare Associates for Montclair Elementary Learning Garden (Denver Public Schools, Denver, CO).

Terracare Associates (TCA) collaborates with Montclair Elementary (DPS) to plan, assist with design and build an outdoor educational space. TCA installed a learning garden in early spring to include: classroom vegetable planters, a melon patch and a horticulture interpretive area adjacent to the outdoor classroom, extending the school¿s curriculum to include outdoor growing. Thesix-month project includes excavation, installation of footpath and planters and extensive irrigation to
be completed by Earth Day 2016. Montclair is an underserved and diverse urban school, and many children are unaware of the origination of fresh vegetables. TCA will continue this partnership through ongoing education and expertise throughout the year.
