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.

Victoria’s Veggies! New Food Portion of this Blog!

Victoria’s Veggies!

 We welcome Victoria, her helping hands and her love of good food!

IMG_0460.JPGI wish to introduce you to my friend, Victoria.  She recently moved back to Stillwater with her family and is now my neighbor!  Victoria loves kids, so I asked her if she would like to help me at The Giving Garden this summer.  Thankfully, she said YES!  Today Victoria worked hard to stake individual sprinkler heads, weed, water and plant onion sets!

While planting, Victoria shared how much she loves food, food of any kind, fruit and vegetable of any kind...even onions!  So, Victoria is going to start adding her thoughts and ideas on how to eat the fruit and veggies we are growing at the garden.  We are calling her words Victoria’s Veggies! 

Today’s words are about onions!  She says “I like onions raw and cooked!  They taste great on hamburgers and hotdogs and sandwiches.  I really like them cut up into Asian food.  I really like them in LeeAnn Chin dishes! They always taste good dipped in Ranch dressing!”  Here’s a link to many recipes that star onions!  I’m sure Victoria would love all of them! http://allrecipes.com/recipes/fruits-and-vegetables/vegetables/onions/  Thanks, Victoria!  Thank you also to Bergmann’s Greenhouse for donating the onion sets!
