So impressed the winter containers the students from Deerpath Middle School’s Garden Club designed. We are happy we could contribute to their creativity!
Wreath Building Workshop
What better way to get in the holiday spirit than our annual wreath building workshop with the students from the Ferrer Foundation? The wreaths they created will be some of the holiday items for sale at our Planting Seeds of Hope event this holiday season. All proceeds will go to the Ferrer Foundation’s Keeping Grounded Greenhouse Program.
This week our construction team helped the Lake Forest Country Day School pre-schoolers plant a tree. We love getting involved in the community and are glad the kids had as much fun as we did!
Congratulations to Ronalyn Irle for winning the Mariani Landscape Scholarship given by the Illinois Landscape Contractors Association Scholarship Program. We are proud to participate in this program and support our industry’s next generation of leaders.
Mariani Internship Program
Every year, Mariani teams up with colleges and horticulture programs across the country. Several of our associates travel to the schools to speak with students interested in a career in the green industry. This year was no exception, as we had seven summer interns here at Mariani!
Our interns worked in the greenhouses and yard, shadowed crews and other professionals and gained widespread exposure to many opportunities in landscape architecture, construction and fine garden care. Thank you all for your hard work!
Lake Forest Day Parade
A beautiful morning for the Lake Forest Day Parade! We had a great time participating!
Fourth of July
We love participating in the Lake Bluff Fourth of July Parade each year. We hope everyone had a fun and safe holiday!
Beacon Place held a ribbon cutting ceremony last week for their new learning center. We are glad to have been a part of this project by donating the landscape. Congratulations, Beacon Place!
