National Gardening Day
April 14, 2021
National Gardening Day on April 14 is a day of encouragement, a day created to give gardeners a shove and a shovel so that they can begin their gardening journey. Weather permitting, gardening has always been an endearing task for patient lovers of the great outdoors. A good gardener plans years ahead as they shape the nature that surrounds them according to their vision and needs. With National Gardening Day arriving during Spring, it’s a great chance for you to warm up your green fingers and get planting and preparing for the summer. Our gardens are a unique space, use this day to get out there and make the most of them.

Diversity & Inclusion Wellness
Diversity in the workplace is having a good representation of people with a variety of thoughts, skills, world views, and experiences; inclusion is making sure these people are appreciated for what they bring to the table and both foster enhanced employee well-being.
