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.

Our hard-working group of teens, moms, Maddie, Elise, Jasmine, Charlie and Misty along with Master Gardeners, Kathy and Tricia, spent time "oohing and ahhing" over the fast growth of the plants since the last time we were out to work!  
In addition to continuing to win the war on weeds, we harvested a variety of fruits and veggies for the shelves at Valley Outreach.  Raspberries, kale, bok choi, cucumbers, purple beans and a lone purple pepper were harvested and donated.  
Please note the single red tomato we found shining like a beacon in the sea of green leaves!  Too bad a non-human critter beat us to it and left us with a SURPRISE face on our fruit!
