Scribendi.com Staff Get Dirty on Earth Day
The editing company's staff plants gardens for the Lower Thames Valley Conservation Authority
Scribendi.com teamed up with the Lower Thames Valley Conservation Authority (LTVCA) to fund and create a garden in the Thames Grove Conservation Area.
"Scribendi.com is pleased to be partnering with the LTVCA for the fifth year in a row to support greening initiatives in Chatham-Kent," said Samantha Russell, VP of Operations at Scribendi.com. "In addition to sponsoring this worthwhile cause, several Scribendi.com employees have committed time out of their busy schedules to roll up their sleeves and lend their green thumbs to the efforts."
Scribendi.com is passionate about preserving and maintaining the environment in Chatham-Kent and continues to support the LTVCA in its greening efforts. Over the past five years, the company has donated and planted 20 trees in Mid-Wood Oxley Park, teamed up with Union Gas to purchase and plant 150 trees in Paxton's Bush, and donated 10,000 peat pots to the Chatham-Kent Green Initiative Project.
"Tall grass prairie is a rare ecosystem that consists mainly of grasses and wildflowers. This habitat type was once found throughout Chatham-Kent. This spring, Scribendi.com employees are going to be working with the Greening Partnership/LTVCA to restore a tall grass prairie area at Thames Grove Conservation Area in Chatham. Staff will plant a variety of species along the banks of the Thames River and restore a feature that will provide a habitat to many species, such as blue birds, bobolink, monarch butterflies, and many other beneficial pollinators," said Randall Van Wagner, Environmental Project Coordinator at the LTVCA.
Scribendi.com plans to continue donating time and financial support to the LTVCA and green initiatives to benefit Chatham-Kent's environment.
