Salt Lake City Office Spring Cleans for the Murray Greenhouse Foundation

As part of Lochner’s Giving Back Initiative, employees throughout the firm participate in an annual group service project that benefits the local communities in which they live, work, and play. This week, we are featuring the volunteer efforts of our Salt Lake City, Utah office at the Murray Greenhouse Foundation. On March 2, 2019, the Salt Lake City office volunteered to take apart and scrub down roughly 40 stackable tables, which are used as planting surfaces for flower, fruit, vegetable, and herb starts and plants. Our employees’ work cleaning the tables drastically reduced the time needed to prepare for the new spring crop and will help keep it free of aphids and other pests. The crop will be sold as starters or potted plants to the community, and proceeds from these sales will go toward sustaining the foundation’s efforts.

The Murray Greenhouse Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to furthering education and opportunities for adults with disabilities. The foundation’s students range from wheelchair-bound individuals, requiring assistance with most tasks, to very high-functioning individuals, requiring very little help. All students are responsible for tending to the ground’s two greenhouses and must participate in group activities, projects, and cleaning assignments. These responsibilities give them a sense of ownership in the program and also provide opportunities for them to cultivate new life skills and independence as well as socialize with others who have similar challenges.
