Stark & Marsh and Innovation Federal Credit Union are thrilled to announce that GoGreen 2023, the City’s beloved beautification project, will take place on September 15th in Swift Current. In partnership with The City of Swift Current, GoGreen has become a staple event in our community, contributing over 3,500 trees and shrubs to enhance our surroundings. This year, we anticipate planting an additional 675 trees, shrubs, and perennials across various project sites.

The 2023 GoGreen project sites include the Plewis Automotive Group Inclusive Park, Memorial Park, City Ball Diamonds, Flag Court, Kiwanis Park, Douglas Drive, Gladstone, Memorial Cemetery, Elmwood Park, Chinook parkway – multi-site cleanup, and the former Ashley Park School grounds. Volunteers will be actively involved in tree and shrub planting, mulching, flower bed maintenance, pathway cleanup, past GoGreen site maintenance, and garbage picking. We encourage businesses to participate by utilizing their staff resources, alongside members of the community at large.

Darcy Congdon, DOO of Stark & Marsh, expressed his excitement, stating, “We are really excited to celebrate another year of GoGreen in the community.
