On Aug. 30, LO member Scott Wentworth of Wentworth Landscape Group in Picton will stage a business improvement event through the JP Horizons Face-2-Face program.

The first day will review Wentworth’s corporate systems and processes.

JP Horizons runs the program several times a year across the U.S. The second day will focus upon the Come Alive Outside community event that Scott Wentworth has begun in Picton.  

“We will review how we have worked with Prince Edward County to have it declare itself the first Come Alive Outside community in North America,” says Wentworth. He will discuss the nature and structure of the program, partnering with other community groups, and he will include a session with three municipal councillors who will share their perspective on the program. “This should allow green industry companies to have confidence when approaching leaders in their community about hosting a similar event.”

The local council in Picton recently approved plans from Wentworth to construct a fitness trail through the Come Alive Outside program. The proposal involves 15 pieces of high quality outdoor exercise equipment. The trail will run adjacent to three schools, the community soccer fields, community centre and youth park.

“Our latest event was on Canada Day when we sodded a street in downtown Picton to hold unstructured play events for families,” said Wentworth.

Landscape Ontario members can register two people from their company for the price of one to attend this business improvement event.
