LO’s Garden Centre sector group recently allocated resources to be sure its members use Green for Life to full advantage.

It has hired contract staff to phone each member garden centre and assist with its web profile page. The temps will do everything from answer upload questions to help write each garden centre’s promotional copy.

Every LO member, regardless of sector, may add a profile to his listing in the “Find a professional” section of the stunning new The profile is essentially your personal web page on the site. In addition to your contact information, profiles include the areas you serve, your specialties, your logo, a link to your own site, photos of your work and any other promotional copy you care to upload. Instructions are posted at

The Garden Centre group feels this opportunity is so important it has allocated this funding to help its members participate. In addition, member garden centres will receive a promo package, including marketing materials, information for customers on the Home Renovation Tax Credit, and a poster promoting native trees; a joint project between LO and the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources.
