It thought this was really interesting about the Southwest employees garden in Dallas. The full article here:

"Speaking of how easy this is, a group of Southwest Employees have turned a grassy area near our Dallas Headquarters into a garden that not only benefits Mother Earth but local non-profits too. Everything is being grown organically—no chemicals or pesticides. And, all of the vegetables harvested from this garden are donated to local Dallas-area food banks. Talk about volunteerism at its best!

To top it all off, “The Landing” (the award-winning café located inside the Dallas Headquarters), operated by Eurest Dining Services, donates their organic wastes to the compost pile. Eurest also uses cuttings from onions and bell peppers to grow seedlings, which are then planted in the garden."

Do you know of others that garden at work?
