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.

We’re Going on a Veggie Hunt...with the Time for Me Preschool kids!

Time for Me Tots!
The Time for Me kids returned for their second visit to the garden this season. Last time, we observed the plants in their newly planted, baby stage. This time, we observed that these plants have grown into
teenagers and grown-up plants!

We began our time together with a familiar call and response chant you all may remember called, “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt.” It’s fun to pretend that we are traveling through tall grass, mud, rivers, mountains and caves to hunt for bears!

Though I doubt we have bears in our garden, we can do lots of hunting for veggies!

So, our little chant became “We’re Going on a Veggie Hunt, We’re Going to Pick Some Big Ones, What a Beautiful Day, Let’s Find Some _________! “ We had fun making our way through the garden picking zucchini, yellow squash, beets, turnips, and cucumbers.

Thanks for your helping hands today, friends!

See you in August when the corn is over your heads!
