Corporate Gardening Program

In a typical office environment, there are always a few employees here and there that will take the initiative to water and maintain plants inside or outdoors. With FSG's corporate gardening program, we aim to create a cohesive environment where all the employees participate in the managing and ongoing continuous development of the garden either indoor and or outdoors. The benefits of incorporating gardening in the workplace have some profound benefits that include increasing better camaraderie, beautifying the office space indoors and or outdoors and in some cases learning to grow your own food. Gardening also presents employees with an opportunity to get away from their keyboard for 30 minutes and use this time to distress and they get their hands a little dirty.
