THE GARDEN STORY

Here at Retail Construction Services, Inc., we are dedicated to giving back.

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.

Back Row:  Kathy, Isabilla, Elle, Maya, Elizabeth, Anna, Rochel, Syndey Jo and Sydney
 The Rutherford Junior Master Gardeners arrived here for their first visit to the RCS Teaching & Giving Garden.  They took a tour of our office, learned where they will be weighing the produce before donation, and then headed out to the garden to get their hands dirty!
Their leader, Master Gardener Kathy Luoma stepped the group through planting the tomatoes that the group had grown from seed.  We had reserved one row for their tomato plants.

The group also made garden posters to put out in the garden.  We had these laminated and one of the upcoming projects is to get these distributed on stakes around the garden!

Thank you Rutherford JMG kids! 
We are so excited to have you in the garden this summer!
