From the New York Times: The Rise of Corporate Gardens
- by tribe
At many BAMCO college and university accounts, it's common for enthusiastic students and BAMCO employees to maintain gardens that supply fresh produce for the campus community and cafés. A growing number of corporations have also started gardens, where employees can get their hands off of the keyboard and into the dirt at lunch, and enjoy fresh produce in corporate cafés and break rooms.
BAMCO is at the forefront of this trend with at least 12 of our corporate accounts actively gardening. In this New York Times article, journalist Kim Severson covers the rise of company gardens, including an interview with Resident District Manager Kent Buell about some of the challenges in starting and running a successful corporate garden.
