Greenwise in the Community
We enjoy giving back to our local community! Here are some of the projects we’ve worked on.
Greenwise Pesticide-Free Parks Program
Greenwise loves its hometown! To thank the community that has supported and grown with us, Greenwise partnered with the City of Evanston to launch the Pesticide-Free Parks Program (PFP Program) in 2014.
Adopt a Park Program
As part of Greenwise’s commitment to providing pesticide-free parks in Evanston, we are committed to helping keep those parks clean. Once a month, our Greenwise team heads out to Burnham Shores Park on the lakefront and we pick up litter.
The Talking Farm
Talking Farm runs a local urban farm called the Howard Street Farm, where they grow produce for local restaurants and farmer’s markets and educate the community about food sustainably. Greenwise and the Talking Farm both care about how we treat the environment!
District 181 Foundation in Western Suburbs
We are proud to give back to your community and help sponsor the D181 Foundation as we expand our organic lawn care services to your neighborhoods (Hinsdale, Clarendon Hills, Oak Brook, Burr Ridge, and Willowbrook).
Sponsoring the Hinsdale Humane Society
Greenwise is an organic lawn care company, so clearly we care about safe lawns for our environment. But, dogs are right up there, too! That’s why it’s so important to ensure your lawn and the lawns in your neighborhood are pesticide free.
The Mayor‘s Employer Advisory Council (MEAC)
We couldn’t be prouder to be a business partner with the Mayor’s Employer Advisory Council (MEAC). Its goal is to help those high school students who don’t have a clear path to higher education discover meaningful careers for themselves.
Providing Free Snow Removal Service to a Neighbor in Need
With our zero-tolerance policy on snow from Nov. 1st to Mar. 31st, we wanted to make sure that we could help those most in need in our community. We elected to offer a nominated senior couple a winter’s worth of free snow removal!
Repurposing Plants with The Evanston Rebuilding Warehouse
We teamed up with the Evanston Rebuilding Warehouse and the Kenilworth Clippers Garden Club to save and repurpose plants. We combined forces to hold their first free plant giveaway in north Evanston.
Becoming an Owner of the Wild Onion Food Co-Op
In 2021, members of our Evanston community asked us to join the Wild Onion Market as an owner. We said yes! It makes sense we’d care about a community-owned grocery store that’s creating a safe, organic, and sustainable way to provide affordable food to our community.
Ridgeville Park’s Unity Soccer Festival
You knew we could find our way around a garden or your lawn, but I’m guessing you didn’t know we could make it happen on the pitch! At Greenwise, we both work hard and play hard!
Clean up, Evanston!
We love our home town, and we’re sure you do, too. So on April 22nd, we participated in Evanston’s annual Earth Day and Arbor Day community clean-up event, “Clean up, Evanston!,” at locations throughout the City.
