The H-2B working visa is a nonimmigrant visa that allows foreign nationals to enter the United States temporarily and engage in nonagricultural employment that is seasonal, intermittent, a peak load need, or a one-time occurrence. PLANET has provided a toolkit that includes resources and templates to educate PLANET members and provide them with the information they need to help speak to Congress and help educate them on this important industry issue.
PLANET welcomes you to a new and growing online Lawn and Landscape Issues Communication Toolkit, easily customizable to your particular concern or issue. This toolkit offers numerous resources, samples, and tips in one spot so you can grab what you need and help reporters write accurate stories, consumers make informed choices, and lawmakers pass balanced legislation — in effect, spread the positive, factual benefits about the establishment and maintenance of green spaces that you provide throughout the nation today. This is your toolkit; it's also your opportunity to make a difference and to have a voice about your industry and your profession by supplying reasonable, responsible and factual information.
The Lawn and Landscape Issues Communication Toolkit is always under development. PLANET's staff, Government Affairs Committee, and Public Relations Committee will be adding to and changing this toolkit frequently to bring you the latest information and resources. You are encouraged to add to and comment on the toolkit by contacting PLANET's Government Affairs Director Tom Delaney.
These brochures contain industry information on lawn care, including how to choose a lawn care service, lawn care products and services, water quality, lawn care and pet safety, and lawn and turf benefits.
