CSK Focus on Sustainability
Today we launched our corporate garden. Chad and I (Paul) talked about this a few weeks ago and talked about a loose plan for planting our garden at the CSK offices in West Knoxville. Chad scoped out the spot, and he and his wife put the garden together today. These are the specs:
- 640 lbs of topsoil
- 50 lbs of manure compost
- 3 cubic feet of peat moss compressed
- 1 green bell
- 1 yellow bell
- 1 banana pepper
- 3 burp-less cucumbers with small trellis
- 5 beefsteak tomatoes
- And a soaker hose for easy watering
- Fertilized with seaweed concentrate.
The natural question is why? We believe that sustainability of this earth is critical and take it seriously. Recently we implemented a corporate wellness program, contributing to our employees HSA for various activities such as annual physicals, gym memberships, trail, road and bike races and much more. Shortly after implemented our “snack” policy, eradicating our office of most processed foods,sugars, high-fructose corn syrup and any junk food and replacing them with granola, oatmeal, nuts, fresh fruit, dried fruit, water and vitamin water.
The next step was our garden and here it is. Come by and get some tomatoes, cucumbers or peppers!
