Over the past year, Fossil Group’s employee-led On-Site Community Garden bloomed from a simple question: How can we grow food to donate to local community partners? Take a look at the fruits (and vegetables) of our labor.
Two Fossil designers pitch the idea of an On-Site Community Garden.
A team of green thumbs from Fossil Central Station brainstorm potential spaces, logistics and operational next steps, including budget, design, and structure for a Community Garden.
Earth Day 2017
Fossil Group announces the pilot location of the On-Site Community Garden and issues a call-to-action to employees to join the effort.
The Community Garden team finalizes the pilot budget and plot design. They secure build-out supplies and set up a water spigot and a garden shed.
First On-Site Community Garden Build Day—four plots are built and set up for fall planting.
Our On-Site Community Garden produces its first bounty of radishes, carrots and other good-for-you goodies.
During our Fall Greater Together Tour, employee volunteers build hoops, which will protect plants and prepare the plots for winter.
The team reviews lessons learned and best practices and begins planning for a 2018 global expansion.
