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.

A lesson on dragon carrots
A group from Johnson-McCann, our insurance agency, joined us in the garden today! 

Always a time for education.  The weather was perfect for working in the garden.  There were a lot of Edamame soy beans ready to be picked today as well as purple beans and purple carrots. 

Harvesting Edamame beans
Little helpers always add to the excitement of pulling veggies from the garden.  Our youngest visitor was surprised by the purple beans and purple carrots. Seeing a purple carrot can be confusing but always opens the door to education.  

We had a great day of picking produce and realizing the importance of supplying our local food shelf with fresh veggies.
