Earth Day 2016


At Flaherty & Collins Properties, we care deeply about the environment. From the development of new projects that include groundbreaking and new technologies that showcase LEED and Green Features (read more about that here), to the more than 100 apartment communities and 15,550+ units we currently manage across the nation.

This year, two of our properties showcased our affection for Mother Earth with a resident event. Carriage House and Williamsburg on the Lake, two of our managed communities in Elkhart, Indiana celebrated Earth Day with our residents.


Over 30 attendees made “dirt cups” to pass out using chocolate pudding, crushed oreos, and gummy worms on top!


In addition, the event featured word searches, coloring pages, and planted seeds. Many had fun using ice cream cones for our pots, and everyone took a plant home to put in their patio or on their balcony. The ice cones are biodegradable and earth friendly.




We would like to thank Jim Chazel and the Comcast staff for supplying drinks, pizza and cookies for the event, as well as the fantastic staffs of both Carriage House and Williamsburg on the Lake for putting this together for our residents.
