The Professional Landcare Network (PLANET) announces their partnership with JP Horizons for five "Come Alive Outside Face-to-Face" events at landscape company facilities across the country.

The Come Alive Outside Face-to-Face movement creates awareness about the benefits of helping individuals, families, and businesses. Each event will offer real-life case studies in which successful landscape companies open the doors of their operations to workshop participants, to examine six key areas of the business and, later, engage in problem-solving roundtable discussions.

This interactive learning experience, led by industry expert Jim Paluch, provides a look behind the scenes of a successful company and a chance to network and problem solve. It also provides a business strategy for landscape industry companies to inspire staff and engage clients by providing the motivation to get people outside in their yards, parks, sports fields, and other community green spaces.

The program is supported by the following smart companies; Belgard Hardscapes, Blizzard Snowplows, Fisher Snowplows, Include Software, JOHN DEERE, Nature Safe, and Western.

The first event will take place on April 16th at DeSantis Landscapes, an award-winning, family-owned, landscaping company with offices in Portland and Salem Oregon, specializing in residential and commercial landscaping services.

The schedule for the other Come Alive Outside Face-to-Face events is as follows: (an additional location will be announced later in the year.)

Winter Services, Inc., Milwaukee, Wis.--July 16, 2013
NatureWorks Landscape Services, Walpole, Mass.--Aug. 20, 2013
Chapel Valley Landscape, Woodbine, Md.--Sept.12, 2013

Registration is now open, and costs $199 per person, per event for PLANET members, and $299 per person and event for non-members.
