GOGREEN

I feel so good that, as a client of Stark & Marsh CPA LLP, your Professional and Support staff actually go out and work with the volunteers on this particular project.  I realize, of course, that Stark Marsh donates to many causes but, in my opinion, GOGREEN is special in so many ways.  Your energy and dedication will benefit Swift Current for many years into the future. The idea, positive message, people working together for common good, and past/present/future results rate an A+ in my records.  – Joan Willliamson

GOGREEN HISTORY

GoGreen began in 2009, after consultations with the City of Swift Current revealed a need for a fall clean up in and around the city. As a corporate citizen, we are committed to our environment and proudly organize this event each year. GoGreen draws over 100 community participants annually, including Stark & Marsh employees and clients. GoGreen Swift Current has contributed to the planting of over 4,000 trees and shrubs.

GoGreen projects include:

  • Tree and shrub planting
  • Landscaping
  • Pathway clean up
  • Flower bed maintenance
  • Mulching

Beautification projects have also taken place in Cabri and Assiniboia and we continue to welcome requests from organizations as needs arise.
