At a companywide meeting in May the Intelex Green Team announced a set of initatives they would be putting into motion with one being the installation of an organic garden on the Intelex rooftop patio.
With a dedicated team of green thumbs, the garden is now in full swing with tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, swiss chard, herbs, beans and flowers. The garden concept was brought to life thanks to the help of Landscape Architect, Luke Jefferson, from Pop-Up Gardens who came up with the plan and materials for creating our unique milk crate garden.
Now the garden is cared for by more than 17 Intelex volunteers who follow a watering schedule that even includes weekends!
The garden has been a great addition to the work environment here at Intelex. Many have already found it to be a therapeutic break from the busy work day, spending a few relaxing minutes watering, examining the daily growth progress and taking in the view.
While still in its early stages, the garden is booming and hopefully one day soon we'll have a chance to sample our very own Intelex produce.
