When “thank you” isn’t enough…

YardApes would like to extend its thanks to the 2011 volunteers who made the third annual PLANET (Professional Landcare Network) Day of Service a success.

Thank you to YardApes employees Roberto Angulo, Bruce Brown, Jennifer Burks, Angel Guaman, Raul Guaman, Alfredo Hernandez, Florentino Hernandez, Rosa Hernandez, Greg Kaiser, Manuel Labanda, Chris Lewis, Greg Malmberg, Ramiro Parra, Isauro Perez, Jose Rodriguez, Walter Singer, Armando Valdez, Kristen Vogt, and Ramiro Yanez.

We would also like to thank the following area businesses and persons for donating their time, expertise, and equipment:  Matt Johnson and Andrew Kick of Aspetuck Tree & Landscape, LLC, Peter Montgomery of Montgomery Gardens, and Scott Williams of J. Scott Williams Landscape Architect.

To Derrick and David Angulo, Travis Ranson and Matt Vogt, we extend special thanks. These volunteers are part of the YardApes family; they are sons of, brother to and husband of YardApes employees, respectively.

Lastly, to those who, through nomination, brought to our attention the needs of our area homeowner and two nonprofits, The Pratt Nature Center and Harrybrooke Park, we couldn’t have done it without you. This was truly a collaborative effort. We are fortunate to have a YardApes community whose generous support makes all the difference. Our hats are off to you!

We believe everyone everywhere benefits from a connection with nature.
