Franklin Lakes, NJ - Landscape designers from Jacobsen Landscape Design & Construction attended the annual Franklin Lakes Town Fair last weekend to promote the great outdoors and teach children about sustainable landscape practices. The booth was part of the company's participation in "Come Alive Outside," a national movement to promote spending time outside in the community with friends and family. Children of all ages had the chance to learn the basics about planting ornmental plants from Jessica Orellano, one of Jacobsen Landscape's award-winning landscape designers.
The Come Alive Outside Movement was founded in 2010 in response to the sedentary, indoor lifestyle that is contributing to a multitude of adverse effects in our society. The movement appeals to individuals, families, businesses and communities to start finding ways to encourage one another back into the great outdoors. Landscape professionals across North America have taken up the call and started working with their communities to organize events and create outdoor spaces that remind people of the joys of outdoor living.
