Telling the Story of Landscape Career Paths

We want to tell the story of the the amazing careers anyone can have in the landscape industry.

NALP’s Industry Growth Initiative is doing just that in a new national media campaign. We’ll be pitching stories to media such as:

  • Does Your High School Graduate Need to Go To a 4-Year College?
  • 10 Unusual College Majors That Pay Off
  • Why Millennials Don’t Want a Typical Office Job
  • All in the Family: Local Company Finds Hometown Success.


We need your help telling these stories. Contact Missy Henriksen if you can share any stories like the following:

  • Successful landscape professionals who opted out of college and trained on the job,
  • Advice/testimonials from young professionals who pursued an education in horticulture and are now successful landscape professionals,
  • Testimonials from young millennials working in the industry, or
  • Companies who are family-run and have found hometown success regionally.
