We are proud to support a broad array of community organizations, activities and charities. Our family at Nesbitt's Greenhouse believes in giving back to the community and supporting local schools, churches, and worthwhile organizations that encourage neighborhood development and enhance the quality of life.
For several years now we have proudly supported CHEO with funding and have extended our services if needed. Closer to home, we provide annually all of the flowers and gardening necessities for Accès-Centre d'action benevole, which caters mainly to our aging population who need social services. Furthermore, we offer our retired residents an opportunity for employment to benefit both themselves and to give our team the benefit of their wealth of knowledge and life experience.
Annually we work with the Aylmer Food Bank providing them with the vegetable and fruit plants to grow food for families in need. We try to help people help themselves.
Enrich-English Network Resources in Community Health, is a program that we have been a part of for several years now. It teaches young adults how to work effectively in a work place. We have taken the role as teacher/employer, giving students a two week co op each season to learn our trade.
This year our new endeavours will also include a fundraiser for Eardley Elementary Home and School Association as well as support and fundraising for Gatineau athlete Annie-Pier Cloutier who will compete for Canada in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Brazil.
