Teamwork Makes Garden Dreams Grow

3rd & Fairfax Store, Los Angeles, CA

The incredible 3rd & Fairfax store of Los Angeles, CA, organized a team building experience and Kids Day of Service event at their local community school, Alta Loma Elementary. The 3rd & Fairfax team has a special place in their hearts for Alta Loma Elementary. In December 2012 they were fortunate enough to be part of its Whole Kids Foundation School Garden dedication. Almost a year later they returned to revitalize their friendship by helping host their Kids Day of Service event. The team was amazed to see how everything had thrived since their last visit, "Oh, the wonderful fruits of our labor!" exclaimed 3rd & Fairfax Marketing Supervisor, Cathy Quien.

The 3rd & Fairfax team got down and dirty lending a helping hand in the garden with plenty of little helpers by their sides. Afterwards, all garden-goers enjoyed a rainbow of colors in their salad lunch. Their fruitful partnership with EnrichLA, an environmental non-profit organization that builds edible gardens in low-income neighborhoods of Los Angeles, nourished their effort to grow further. No doubt about it, the store has built a longstanding relationship with the community school and local partner, which will continue to flourish with teamwork into the future.
