Winter is a great time for reflection, learning something new whether it is reading, taking a tour, or attending a conference or trade show, and making plans for the future. In early January, we attended MANTS (Mid-Atlantic Nursery Trade Show), an invigorating review of the wide selection of nursery vendors of live material, hard goods, gifts, equipment, tools and more. Now, while reflecting on past years and current trends, we are fine tuning our plans for 2019. Our new team member and "Manager of the Unityverse" Chris Sade has jumped right into the planning process. Chris brings over 30 years of logistics, general,project, sales, business and operational management experience to Unity. Born and raised in Baltimore, MD, he earned his business management degree from Loyola University and lives with his wife, Marianne in Chestertown. Be sure to stop by to meet Chris and share a story about your experience with Unity.
This winter Unity's landscape design/build team continues hard at work making progress and completing projects. Unity's Field Operations Manager, Cliff Westman, and Environmental Designer, Lucas Lees, just completed the Certified Chesapeake Bay Landscape professional workshop. "The Chesapeake Bay Landscape Professional (CBLP) Certification is a new, voluntary credential system for professionals who design, install, and maintain sustainable landscapes.The credential training and examination are based on a core set of standards in sustainable landscaping emphasizing storm water retrofit best practices and conservation landscaping with native plants to benefit the environment."
We appreciate all of your past and continued patronage and are truly excited about what we have to offer in 2019.
