ProHealth Care Community Gardening Program

at-the-garden-websiteThe Riley Crew was at it again.  Last year a group of Riley Employees built 10 raised bed planters for a Community Garden Program at ProHealth Care.  The program did so well we were asked back to build another 10 raised bed planters.  The Riley crew made up of Craig Matthews, Amanda Toepel, Dave Riley, Pat Flaherty, Dave Gerou and Franz Lehner all donated 5 hours of their time last Friday (our first ½ day Friday…..).  The planters again turned out great, and are already fully planted.  Everyone pitched in by grading a stone walk-way…thanks Dave and Amanda, cutting lumber for 10 raised beds…..thanks Franz, and then constructing the 10 raised beds…..thanks Craig, Dave and Pat.  We are so thankful to be a part of a great program that helps out a community that we live in.
