Our Sales Manager, Adam Crouch and our Commercial Division Operations Manger, Matthew Henry, teamed up with City Schoolyard Garden and Whole Foods to volunteer at the Whole Foods Garden Party at Greenbrier Elementary School last Wednesday, April 23rd. Greenbrier now has two gardens which educate their students about the benefits of fresh vegetables and sustainable gardening through hands on experience. The gardens at Greenbrier encourage students in each grade (kindergarten through fourth) to participate in planting activities. Greenbrier’s third graders also participated in the “First Peas to the Table” competition in March.
Saturday before the event, a JWT volunteer crew spent the day at Greenbrier installing their second garden for the garden party. The volunteer crew included Adam Crouch, Matthew Henry and our Project Coordinator and Meadow Specialist, Geoff Shaw.
Thank you Adam for spearheading these efforts and engaging JWT for this great cause.
