Grow a garden: The ultimate onsite volunteer project

In 2007, a trio of employees at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota sought permission to dig up a section of lawn at our headquarters to start a “Community Giving Garden.” They enlisted employee volunteers to help cultivate the garden and donate the fresh fruit and vegetables it yields to a local shelter and food shelf.

The Community Giving Garden has been a catalyst for a network of more than 15 giving gardens across the Twin Cities. It’s a great way to engage employees to help meet community needs in a healthy and rewarding way.
