My last entry from Buckingham Greenery.
During my internship, I have worked with almost all the employees who work in Richmond and Buckingham, and I always ask them what they like most about working with Buckingham Greenery. Almost everyone gave me the same answer, that they like to have Fridays off and be permitted to report directly to the jobsite rather than first coming in to the office. And yesterday I discovered that these are two of many practices taken by the company that qualify it as a Green Earth – Green Plants ® Certified Business. Some other measures taken by the company are: use of sub-irrigation conteiners; use of water and soap to clean the plants as an alternative to pesticides use; use of natural and recycled topdressing and accounts are on a 14 day maintenance schedule.
Not just the employees, but the earth thanks such sustainability practices!
This week I worked with Betty Jo, who is the Director of Sales; helped with Christmas scheduling with Lisa Lann; worked on inventories and calendars with Linda Palmore; and more Christmas and florals with James Boix.
As I said before, this was my last full week with Buckingham Greenery! Next Wednesday I'll start working with Integrity Landscape.
But don't worry, I'll keep the journal into my very last day here in the USA!
