Sharing meals builds a healthy family.
Everyone who works at SFNTC is considered family. And everyone knows that one thing families do best is … eat together.
We regularly get together to hang out and eat. That might mean having Donut Fridays, scheduled potlucks or inviting guests to vote on the "best Salsa Chef" in Santa Fe.
Birthdays, anniversaries, a random Friday — all great reasons to celebrate. And everyone’s always welcome. From employees to vendors, to the growers and our entire extended family. We just think one of the best ways to build a strong company is through happy, full employees.
We infused food into our annual Earth Day celebration by serving the entire company an organic meal, made as much as possible from locally produced ingredients. We were commemorating our commitment to the Earth and our local community.
Our 2011 Earth Day festivities brought in a completely new way to foster the SFNTC community when we created an employee-run garden free of chemical-based fertilizers and pesticides. It allowed all of our workers to get a little taste of organic farming and its processes. 2012 brought the second year of our garden.
The bounty of edibles has included melons, squash, cucumbers, onions, peppers, lettuce, herbs, zucchini, tomatoes and more. Plots were tended to by employees, who were able to produce hundreds of pounds of produce through the growing season. And we all learned the ultimate lesson of growing organically: hornworms are zero fun!
No, we won’t leave the vegetable gardening to the professionals. And for this reason, we learned another lesson on the road to a better environment the hard way: There are always bugs to manage.
