Victoria landscape company digs deep for health care workers during pandemic

Fallingwater Property Service is offering free help for health care workers

A Victoria landscaping company is offering help to health care workers to support flattening the curve.

In a blog post, Wes Shelly, founder and CEO of Fallingwater property service, explains how his staff feel privileged to be able to continue to work during the pandemic. When a senior supervisor with the company heard a handyman on the radio offering free fix-it jobs that could help out health care workers that don’t have the time or capacity to keep up at home, the idea was brought to the Fallingwater team.

“[They] are eager to offer their time on Saturdays to cut a lawn, clean up a yard, weed out some garden beds, whatever we can do to give these frontline health care workers something positive to come to at the end of their shift,” reads Shelly’s post.
