Carpe Diem Cleaning Sponsors Wildflower Project

For many years, it’s been a vision of mine to sponsor a wildflower area in our community—I’ve always felt it was a testament to the enduring beauty of nature and a symbol of our commitment to sustainability. Today, I’m thrilled to announce that this dream is finally coming to fruition as Carpe Diem Cleaning is now sponsoring a wildflower area along Hwy 147!

The North Carolina Department of Transportation’s Wildflower Program, launched in 1985, has a mission to enhance our highways with the vibrant colors of native blooms. It has long been a dream of mine to sponsor one of these areas.

My business, Carpe Diem Cleaning, is celebrating thirty years in business this year. This anniversary fell on the same year as my 50th birthday. I didn’t want to celebrate my 50th birthday, so, my amazing team members, Madeline and Julie, thought that instead of throwing a party – they would honor this big milestone by making my dream for our company come true.

This idea couldn’t have been more perfect! It is such a blessing to have the right people on your team. I am blessed to have Madeline and Julie.

At Carpe Diem Cleaning and in my personal life, sustainability, beauty, and community are key pillars and values. This wildflower initiative embodies our commitment to embracing nature and highlighting the essential role of local flora and pollinators in nurturing thriving ecosystems.

This project has been a labor of love, fueled by the unwavering support and dedication of our team. I’ve long believed in the power of collaboration and community, and it’s incredibly gratifying to see this vision come to life with the help of remarkable leaders like Madeline.

We’re honored to play a part in this initiative by sponsoring a stunning wildflower area located off 147 South near Chapel Hill Street. Our sponsored wildflower area will soon blossom with the radiant hues of sunflowers—a breathtaking sight that promises to uplift the spirits of all who pass by.

Planned to bloom in harmony with nature’s cycles, these flowers will be a beacon of hope and beauty, reminding us of the magic that lies within the natural world.
