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.

Beautiful Cabbage and Yuck Bugs!

It was a beautiful, but windy day in the garden today with 3 kids from Summer Stretch at Woodbury United Methodist Church. 

We had 58 pounds of produce for the food shelf.  What a wonderful day in the garden!
We started by going through the garden and seeing what needed to be harvested and then we went to work!  Lots and lots of cucumbers and squash were picked, as well as two beautiful heads of cabbage, green peppers and some broccoli. 
We also found some bugs in the garden - Japanese beetles on the soybeans and squash bugs on the zucchini.  We squished some of them and put the rest into some soapy water.  Yuck!
