Endeavor: Highlighting the Happenings of Garden Spot Village in June
Written by Scott Miller
Hello, and welcome to Endeavor: Highlighting the Happenings of Garden Spot Village.
Wow, there is a lot going on in June. Anyone who rides a bicycle is invited to register and participate in the Pedal to Preserve fundraiser on June 6, 2015, right here on our campus. We expect anywhere from 1,000 to 1,500 riders of all ages. Your ride through the countryside will be absolutely amazing, plus your registration helps to preserve Lancaster County farmland.
The responsibility of a non-profit is to improve the well-being of society in general. Garden Spot Village does that in many different ways, and one of those ways is to support other non-profits through sponsorships. We are the social media sponsor for Relay for Life, being held at Garden Spot High School on Friday, June 19, 2015. We'd love to see you come out, walk, contribute, and participate. Check out the action on the Garden Spot Village facebook page, and follow @Garden Spot Village #RelayforLife on Twitter to stay up to date.
We just kicked off another exciting and innovative project. As far as we know, it's the first in our industry. We'll be building a sophisticated, hydroponic greenhouse to grow fresh produce that will be served in our restaurants. We started a relationship with a local Amishman, who developed and perfected the aeroponic formula and technology. We've been purchasing produce from him and now we'll be able to grow our own. It gives new meaning of the concept of farm to fork, and broadens your healthy, nutritious choices when you eat on campus.
You can learn more about these things by visiting our website. You can discover other events and opportunities on campus by reading the lastest issue of the Garden Variety. You can click here to access it, or find it on the events page of our website.
This has been Endeavor: Highlighting the Happenings of Garden Spot Village in June, 2015. I'm Scott Miller, and I hope to see you around campus.
As I always say, life is good!
