THE GARDEN STORY

Retail Construction Services, Inc. is dedicated to giving back.

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. Here at the RCS Giving Garden, school groups, master gardeners, corporate volunteers, and our own employees work together for the common good of teaching children the art of gardening and the importance of healthy eating.

Thank you ALC Students! The frost hit our garden hard this past weekend and this was the final picking day. We reached a 2010 grand total of 2,403.3 lbs of produce donated this season! That is up +596.5 lbs from 2009.

We will be putting the garden to bed on Thursday, October 21st. Anyone who would like to join us in the garden to help is welcome! We will be starting around 9 am. The ALC students are confirmed for that date as well.

How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world. ~Anne Frank
