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.

Angels in the Teaching Giving Garden

We had angels arrive at our office in the form of Washington County Master Gardeners.  Not only were they here the Friday before Labor Day weekend to harvest produce AND weeds, but they came again today for a repeat performance.

The unexpected surprise was the flowers, bagels, cream cheese and card they brought for our staff.

"I've seen and met angels wearing the disguise of ordinary people living ordinary lives." 
~Tracy Chapman

The compassion each of you has shown not only toward the hundreds of youth who have had lessons in this garden, but the care and compassion you show with your volunteering in the garden - knowing full well the people that this food impacts - is an inspiration for us all.  Your work hasn't gone unnoticed.

Thank you for all that you do Washington County Master Gardeners for all that you contribute to this Teaching Giving Garden.

You are the fertilizer when the soil is not fruitful and the strength when the weeds threaten domination.

From the bottom of our hearts, Thank you from the entire staff at Retail Construction Services, Inc.
