At Asset Health, wellbeing is more than a job, it’s a way of life. So this past spring and summer we started a garden at our Troy office, not only to add some beauty to our grounds, but to offer our employees fresh, organic produce and an avenue to connect with nature during the workday.
Our six-member employee Garden Team began designing and installing raised-bed vegetable gardens in early spring. With a little rain and sunshine, our organic garden (sans chemicals) offered a bounty of vegetables, including tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, spinach, lettuce, chard and parsley.
The Troy, Michigan, blog City Matters wrote an article detailing our garden adventure:
“By design, the garden is rodent-proof, and the lawn sprinklers provide ample water. Gardeners often stroll the office halls sharing fresh produce. It has been a great way to foster teamwork, [promote] communication and encourage healthy snacking. One gardener beamed, ‘We’ve also used some of the herbs for infused water stations. The garden has had a very positive impact on company culture.’”
