Whole Foods Store Creates Local Garden To Supply Its Own Produce

June 23, 2010: 01:30 AM EST
A Whole Foods Market store in Richmond, Va., will cultivate a one-acre garden plot in a residential community to grow some of its own produce to be used at first in its own prepared foods and the salad bar. With approval from the county, it also plans to sell produce directly to customers. The community garden, the first created by the Texas-based company, is divided into five sections and includes areas for composting, an orchard, space for individual plots and for demonstration and educational programs. Whole Foods will use most of the garden itself, but individuals eventually might be able to rent small areas as well. The land for the garden was donated by the retail and residential development's management company.
