Community Outreach

Building Better Lives

Being independent shouldn’t mean going it alone. AMES is proud to contribute to worthy projects that build better lives and stronger communities through our community outreach programs.

Hershey Gardens

AMES partnered with Hershey Gardens in 2010 for The Great Garden Adventure, a new program which is geared to visitors ages 4-11, and features a fun and challenging guide which contains clues and hints to help kids solve mysteries throughout The Children’s Garden.

Each successful Adventurer receives a sturdy, child-sized gardening tool made by AMES.

Remember Me Rose Garden

AMES is a proud partner of the Remember Me Rose Garden organization. “Remember Me” Rose Garden is a Living Tribute, meant to affirm life and to honor the memory of those who died in the attacks against America on September 11, 2001. “Remember Me” Rose Gardens will be created on or near each of the three sites. AMES provided tools for the groundbreaking and planting of the Shanksville, PA rose garden, and also sent tools to support three school gardens in the Washington DC area for schools who lost students in the Pentagon tragedy.
