Canada: Clean highway is Orangeline Farms’ new “baby”

A recent adoption has placed a new charge under Orangeline Farms’ care. It’s a stretch of highway and they plan to “baby” it with plenty of tender loving care. Under Ontario’s adopt-a-highway program, volunteer organizations agree to pick up litter along a designated roadway. Signs at both ends of the road identify the adopter and showcase the organization’s civic pride.

“As growers, we’re very sensitive to environmental issues and we wanted to step up and do our part to make the area as clean and as pollution free as we can.” says Jordan Kniaziew, Vice-President of Orangeline Farms. “This is a tangible demonstration of our commitment to social responsibility and of the progressive, community-minded thinking that underlines everything we do.” Orangeline Farms is one of the first Canadian greenhouse growers to adopt a highway.



The section of roadway adopted by Orangeline Farms runs along Highway 77 in Leamington, Ontario, in front of Orangeline Farms greenhouse facilities. Kniaziew encourages others to investigate the program; information on Adopt-a-Highway can be found at http://www.mto.gov.on.ca/english/

Orangeline Farms is an Award-winning grower of specialty greenhouse brands, including a soon-to-be released product line that Kniaziew promises will deliver "amazing" consumer appeal. The operation is family-owned and operates on a year-round basis. .
