Your Taking What to Work?

It started with "Take Your Daughter to Work Day." That expanded to "Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day." The purpose of this day is to provide our children an enriching opportunity to see the value of education as well as the activities which happen in the workplace.

Then, on June 20, 1999, "Take Your Dog to Work Day" created the opportunity for business to celebrate the companionship of dogs as well as encourage rescue and adoption from shelters, humane socieities and breed rescue operations.

I was thinking, in August, how about a "Take Your Homegrown Veggies to Work Day." This would be a great opportunity to encourage the use of locally grown vegetables--nothing more local than your own backyard. Additionally, for those prolific gardeners, it could provide an outlet for those rambunctuous zukes which seem to grow faster than any one gardener can utilize them. Additionally, tomatoes, beans, peppers could be brought in to work and displayed on the desk then sent home with friends and colleagues. A community salad lunch could provide an opportunity to everyone to enjoy the labors of the gardeners in the group. What do you think. Let's set the date as the third Thursday in August.

Haha! I love it!! I'd love to take my dog to work, and I'd love to swap veggies with people at work too. :) I live in Arizona. I have a container garden with brocolli and cauliflower and we are making lots of soups with them. I like your blog!

Thanks! I'm glad you are enjoying brocolli and cauliflower, too. I love that once the large head of brocolli is harvested, the plant continues to send up baby brocs.
