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.

7/29/13

 
Jr. Master Gardener Group
Back Row L to R:  Charlie, Jasmine, Amanda
Front Row L to R:  Avery and Evan
Today a small but dedicated "Monday Team" gathered at the RCS Giving Garden.  The cool air and bright sunshine made for perfect gardening conditions.
Charlie, Evan and Amanda searched diligently for rich red raspberries fighting off the sharp thorns of the raspberry bush to produce 1.25 pounds of raspberries! Jasmine and Avery teamed up and picked the beautiful purple green beans.
The other "crop" we picked was today was weeds!  Maintenance, such an important part of any healthy garden was tackled with by this group with gusto!
Everything we picked was donated to Valley Outreach (not the weeds of course).
Michelle who gladly accepted the berries and beans stated "Someone is really going to enjoy these!"  We hope so!
