We give back not only to those in need within our community, but also the future generations of this wonderful community. What started out as a great idea has grown exponentially and has become an amazing reality.

Giving Garden Irrigation System

The irrigation system for the RCS Giving Garden was installed yesterday. A big shout out to RCS owners Steve Bachman and Gim Middleton for designing the system, purchasing/installing the equipment and donating their time. The irrigation system is designed with timers so that all areas of the garden will receive the appropriate amount of water at planned intervals according to the specific vegtable type. Fantastic job Steve and Gim!

Thanks to the employees of RCS and Wendy from Buells Landscape Center in Hastings, the entire process took about three hours.
