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 Colorful Feast!

Last week I had an opportunity to spend a long weekend in Chicago celebrating a friends’ 50th birthday.  We admired these multi-colored cauliflower heads and carrot bunches before we sat down to share this colorful vegetable salad at an urban market restaurant.  It was delicious and was such a treat for our senses!
         

Today, the Junior Master Gardener kids helped me pick a colorful feast for our senses and the senses of the people who will receive these vegetables!  These young gardeners tackled 61 pounds of cucumbers, zucchini, carrots, tomatoes, edamame, beets,
pole beans and cabbage.  It was great for these kids to see the positive results of their early summer tedious carrot weeding.


They gave the carrots a chance to breathe and room to expand without having to compete with the weeds for water and nutrients.  Thanks kids!

Thanks to Caden’s whole family who joined in today as well!
