The Sanctuary was launched in the spring of 2000 to design, manufacture and market environmental friendly organic products into the golf industry. Ever since, the Sanctuary products and their management team have grown. Their products and markets include product now sold into the golf, lawn care, sports turf, retail and agricultural market sectors. This growth is due to its management leadership, marketing and administrative skills of its cofounders, staff, working partners and customers.
