The Waterloo Network Hub is hosting our next breakfast with Mark Schwarz from Earthscape Landscaping.
We invite you to join us as he shares his extraordinary story of becoming an entrepreneur. As a Graduate of Systems Design Engineering from the University of Waterloo, his portfolio includes many startup businesses from landscape construction, playground design/build, restaurants, agricultural machinery, to automation engineering.
During his recent retirement, Mark has set his sights on working with a youth group known as The Boyz Landscaping and Maintenance based in the Waterloo Region. The Boyz focus on building employment skills within landscaping design and are provided the opportunities to participate in recreational activities like whitewater canoeing, swimming in the pond or visiting the farmer’s market.
Through Mark’s mentorship, the youth group is currently working on projects that include design and construction of a new 67-acre public nature park in Elmira and a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Garden, which is a system of growing and distributing organic produce that restores the link between farmers and the surrounding communities.
Please connect with us over breakfast at the RiverSong Banquet Hall to learn more.
