Dominion is now the 2012 corporate leader in both the total number of associates and total number of hours committed to the success of the Lewis Ginter Community Kitchen Garden. Dominion achieved the leadership position as of Monday, October 22, when Iva Limbach led her team to work in the Garden. Iva and her team also volunteered in the garden during 2011, and other Dominion associates during 2012 were repeat volunteers as well.

The Monday harvest combined with the Saturday harvest resulted in 390 pounds of sweet potatoes delivered to FeedMore.
Editor’s Note: Dominion is a wonderful partner to the Garden in many ways. Dominion is also the title sponsor for Dominion GardenFest of Lights, which will run November 23, 2012 – January 7, 2013.
