K & D Landscaping Receives 2019 Be the Difference Award

Improving local communities through volunteer work encompasses many of the company's core values, publishes kndlandscaping.com

Watsonville, California - October 20, 2019 /MarketersMedia/ —

One Watsonville-based company recently received noteworthy recognition for its efforts to help the community. Justin White, CEO of K & D Landscaping, Inc. announced last week the local landscaping company is among the latest recipients of the Santa Cruz Volunteer Center's Be the Difference Award. This accolade recognizes groups, non-profits and businesses who voluntarily go the extra mile to make Santa Cruz County a healthier, happier community for its residents.

"At K & D Landscaping, we live by six core values: professionalism, teamwork, humility, respect, hunger and safety," said White. "Our very industry revolves around helping to keep homes and businesses in our area beautiful through our landscape planning, development and maintenance services, but our team has a desire to go beyond those efforts. Our passion for landscaping and hunger for improving our neighborhoods led us to find more ways of engaging our communities and making them better places to live. This is what sparked our ongoing Community Beautification Project and was ultimately responsible for us receiving this award."

K & D Landscaping has used its landscaping knowledge and experience to foster a number of volunteer projects throughout the communities it serves. One of the projects in the company's time line was Chanticleer Park in Live Oak, also known as Leo's Haven. White and other members of the K & D team combined their time and resources with those of eight other landscaping companies to bring the project to fruition.

The Aptos Village Park Community Beautification is among the company's growing list of projects as well. In this undertaking, K & D took on the issues of inadequate irrigation, outdated landscaping and soil erosion. Among the solutions put into play by the company were drought-tolerant plants, a rock retaining wall and improved overall sustainability throughout the park.

Concluded White, "We're proud to have a hand in keeping our neighborhoods beautiful. From the Landscaping Maintenance services we offer our clients to our volunteer efforts to improve local parks and women's and children's shelters and creating garden boxes for schools in our communities, everything we do revolves around enhancing the neighborhoods in which we live and work. Our team encourages anyone in our area with a beautification idea in mind to contact us, and we look forward to the projects we'll be completing in the future."

Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

Nov 17, 2019

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...

The Senate unanimously passed the Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture Act on Tuesday, two weeks after the House passed it on a voice vote. Florida Reps. Ted Deutch and Vern Buchanan sponsored the bill. Deutch, a Democrat, said it "sends a clear message that our society does not accept cruelty against animals" and...

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — Forget reheated, freeze-dried space grub. Astronauts are about to get a new test oven for baking chocolate chip cookies from scratch. The next delivery to the International Space Station — scheduled for liftoff this weekend — includes the Zero G Oven. Chocolate chip cookie dough is already up there, waiting to pop into this small electric oven designed for zero gravity.
