Great Lakes Nursery & Landscape Association Announces “Fall Is For Planting”
The leaders of nine nursery and landscape associations in the Great Lakes region recently agreed to renew an emphasis on the “Fall Is For Planting” theme beginning in autumn of 2004.
The presidents, presidents-elect and executive directors of nursery and landscape associations from Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Ontario, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin met in Chicago for the Great Lakes Nursery & Landscape Association Leadership Council conference in October 2003. Reorganizing that there continues to be great potential for fall sales of nursery stock and related sales of landscape services, the associations agreed that each would strive to work with their members to promote the “Fall Is For Planting” concept. Together, the membership of these states and provincial associations represent more than 8,700 Green Industry companies and professionals.
In particular, the states will make available for sale “Fall Is For Planting” banners from the American Nursery & Landscape Association and “Fall Is For Planting” magnets recently developed by the New York State Nursery & Landscape Association. As other promotional materials and ideas are developed, the state organizations will share with each other in an effort to have the theme recognized throughout the Great Lakes region.
