Heritage Conservancy Honors Thomas Hebel of Bucks Country Gardens at Annual Business Member Reception

Event Recognizes Significant Contribution to Conservation

Doylestown, PA, April 23, 2012: Heritage Conservancy, an accredited not-for-profit conservation organization that specializes in preserving our natural and historic heritage, honored Mr. Thomas Hebel at its annual Business Member Reception on Thursday, April 19th at the organization’s headquarters, historic Aldie Mansion in Doylestown, PA. Mr. Hebel was presented with the Conservancy’s 2012 Business Leader Conservation Award.

With attendees that included many of the Conservancy’s valued business members, as well as U.S. Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick and members of Heritage Conservancy’s staff and Board of Directors, the event showcased Mr. Hebel’s significant and profound contributions to conservation. Founder of Bucks Country Gardens, the company encompasses many facets of environmentally sustainable business practices, including recycling drop boxes on the property for used planters, and holding informational seminars on using native plants to create natural wildlife habitats. In 2011, Mr. Hebel cut the ribbon to Bucks Country Garden’s own one-acre solar field, which produces enough energy to help run the facility.

“Bucks Country Gardens is a fine example of a local business that is committed to green business practices,” said Linda Cacossa, Heritage Conservancy’s Chief Operating Officer. “As a long standing business member and supporter of Heritage Conservancy, we are pleased to recognize Mr. Thomas Hebel with this award.”

U.S. Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick gave a Congressional commendation to Hebel, and Heritage Conservancy’s Chairman of the Board, Marv Woodall, offered special congratulations.  As well, newly appointed President of Heritage Conservancy, Jeffrey Marshall, offered Hebel his compliments. The reception also honored the many business members who continue to promote the Conservancy’s mission through their advocacy and generosity.
