TTI organized and participated in a community garden and park cleanup project, the idea to do so spurred by the company celebrating their 30th Anniversary this past May. Originally located in Marlton, TTI moved to their 1253 North Church Street location, directly across from the Wesley Bishop Park, in 2006. In appreciation of being a part of the Moorestown community, continued business growth and in keeping with their environmental focus, TTI felt it was fitting to help out the town with something (almost) in their front yard. After discussion with the Moorestown Parks and Recreation Director, TTI was happy to contribute manpower to a setting highly attended and used by town residents and teams and visited by many from other communities.
On Friday, May 22, twelve employee volunteers set out with to clean up the recreational and play areas and revitalize Wesley Bishop Park’s entrance garden. The garden area at the Wesley Bishop sign was cultivated and the shape redefined. In harmony with a few existing shrubs, TTI’s green team added new plantings including compact goldmound and snowmound spireas, Achillea millefolium (yarrow), guara (pink wand), heuchera (coral bells), and coreopsis (tickseed). The garden was finished with thick layer of black licorice mulch for plant protection and aesthetics. Volunteers also walked the sports campus picking up trash and debris to clean up the play fields and playground areas.
It was a rewarding experience that enhanced one of Moorestown’s recreational centers and promoted an enthusiastic amount of group synergy, a passion for the environment, and a sense of community among TTI employees.
