Campus Landscape Sustainability Planning Project

Campus Landscape Sustainability Planning Project

It’s hard to decide which of the four seasons is most stunning at Willow Valley Communities: winter, spring, summer, or fall. All of them have their own unique beauty that is appreciated by Residents and Team Members alike. Even through the grayest days of winter, Residents can still delight in the warmth and coziness of home—especially knowing that it is Willow Valley Communities’ Maintenance and Grounds Teams who are responsible for snow removal!

Willow Valley Communities’ campus of 210 rolling acres is truly a gift to behold all year round. But as appreciated as our beautiful campus is, with that gift comes big responsibility.

As we build and maintain our gorgeous campus, Willow Valley Communities wants to be mindful of the environment. Our campus landscape sustainability planning project will help in this effort.

Joel Schock, Willow Valley Communities’ Manager of Grounds, is working closely with Residents on this initiative. “Everything we need for our survival and well-being depends either directly or indirectly on our natural environment,” he explained. “This is important to me. I tell Residents, ‘Your backyard is also my backyard!’”

In true Willow Valley Communities spirit, Residents have volunteered and are getting involved. They are coordinating educational opportunities in subjects like pollination and water conservation, and even a trip to the Southeast Agricultural Research and Extension Center in Manheim, PA. Residents are also getting down and getting their hands dirty—all to teach and show what can be done on campus in landscaping sustainability.
