Growing Good Things
Giving back in our own backyard.
Several years ago, the Blue Cross of Idaho Foundation for Health rallied Blue Cross of Idaho employees to take a very ordinary empty lot adjacent to the company headquarters and transform it into something extraordinary.
The result was the Giving Garden, a small parcel planted and tended by Blue Cross of Idaho employee volunteers that serves two primary purposes:
1. To educate BCI staff on organic gardening
2. To donate fresh produce to those in need
It’s been an incredible addition to the community with nearby neighbors often joining us to care for and harvest a small crop that goes back into the community.
