ServiceMaster By Simons professionals were proud to trade in their fire and water damage restoration equipment for shovels last month at the Howard Street Talking Farm. As a corporate sponsor, ServiceMaster By Simons spent its annual day of service supporting the farm for the fourth year in a row. Led by Talking Farm manager Matt Ryan, our team worked on installing two 100 feet sections of fence to the north and south, in the newer west farm area. The team spent time digging trenches, installing metal fence poles and gates, and then attaching chain link panels, one by one.
The Howard Street Talking Farm, located in Skokie, Illinois, encourages healthy, sustainable communities through its support and cultivation of locally grown food via urban farms, urban agriculture and education. The farm has grown considerably over the past seven years, with regular weekly produce sales to well-known local farm-to-table restaurants, participation in farmers markets, educational programs with local schools and an internship program.
“We are very pleased to be able to support The Talking Farm again this year for our annual service day. The team really enjoyed spending time outdoors working on the farm and installing a considerable amount of chain link fencing. The projects the team participates in on the farm are always rewarding and meaningful activities that foster team bonding and promote feelings of goodwill.” Nasutsa Mabwa, Owner ServiceMaster By Simons
