Genworth Generates Progress in the Community Kitchen Garden

In June the Lewis Ginter Community Kitchen Garden received a great push forward into the 2013 growing season. Twenty-two Genworth Financial associates contributed a combined total of 73 hours of gardening labor during one beautiful late spring morning. The array of tasks accomplished by the Genworth team are almost too numerous to list, including mulching, weeding, planting, harvesting turnips and digging a drainage trench.
And they keep coming back for more! Yesterday Nancy Mance brought 6 of her Genworth Sales Services associates out to work in the CKG – even in the rain. Nancy’s team harvested beets, celery, cherry tomatoes and red potatoes, and pulled weeds.
Thanks to Genworth for their continuing financial and volunteer support.
