Businesses Pitch In to Landscape New La Luz Building


When La Luz Center asked retired landscaper Dave Waldron to estimate what it would cost to landscape its new new building, Waldron offered to gather some of his landscaping buddies in the Valley and do the project for free. He recruited donations of plants, materials and labor from nine local businesses, plus some additional labor from his Rotary friends and La Luz volunteers.

The community effort saved La Luz more than $30,000, Waldron said.

“The landscaping industry relies on immigrant labor and we know the importance of La Luz in bettering our Hispanic community,” Waldron said. “It’s been a pleasure to help La Luz landscape their beautiful new building that will provide so many valuable services. Viva La Luz!”

Participating businesses include: Sonoma Materials, Sonoma Mission Gardens, Nyberg Landscaping, Watersaver’s Irrigation Supply, Sonoma Wholesale Nursery, Landscapes Unlimited, and Waldron Landscaping.
