The Toro Company Launches Land. Water. Thrive. Initiative

Whether in our local communities or in the developing world, we are all
stewards of the water and natural spaces that enrich life. With a
commitment to helping our customers and communities worldwide enhance
the beauty, productivity and sustainability of the land, The Toro
Company is proud to introduce its Land.
Water. Thrive. initiative.

This initiative aims to help improve water use efficiency, enhance
outdoor environments and greenspaces, and educate on sustainable
agricultural practices. Over a two-year period, The Toro Foundation is
contributing up to $1 million in grants to nonprofits in our global
communities with the Greenspace Enhancement Grant Program.
Through the energy and talents of our people, this new program aims to
support organizations in their efforts to revitalize parks and green
spaces, enrich the outdoors of our neighborhoods and schools, educate on
the efficient use of water, and support sustainable agriculture through
community gardens.

“Impacting lives through the sustainable use of land and water is the
focus of Land. Water. Thrive.,” said Judson McNeil, president of
The Toro Foundation. “The grant program is directed at conserving and
restoring our outdoor environments to ensure healthier, more vibrant and
sustainable communities where our employees live and work.”

For 2018, the Greenspace Enhancement Grant Program will support
organizations in the following cities worldwide:

Locations included in the 2019 grant program will be announced at a
later date.

Applications are due by September 1, 2018.

Outside of our local communities, and as part of our Land. Water.
Thrive. initiative, we look to further expand our efforts to enrich
the lives of rural families in developing countries. Here, we will focus
on enabling smallholder farmers to enhance the productivity of the land
and drive sustainable solutions to ensure a more food-secure future. As
a leader in water-efficient drip irrigation for the agricultural market,
we will work to equip low-income farmers with improved irrigation
technologies to better manage their limited water resources, promote
sustainable agricultural practices, improve crop yields, and build
thriving communities.
