Atlas Garden Provides Employees a Healthy Alternative
The garden at Atlas Container is in full bloom! Executive VP Peter Centenari has always been passionate about finding ways to support a healthy lifestyle both in and out of the workplace. Wanting to provide a healthier alternative for his employees, Peter had the idea to plant a garden for the men and women at Atlas to enjoy. A space was renovated behind their Severn, MD plant, making room for two extensive garden structures. The garden was cared for daily by both landscapers and employees alike, creating a fun and community-centered initiative for everyone to take part in. The garden was an overall success, growing everything from peppers to tomatoes to squash. Picked daily by Peter and the rest of Atlas, produce containers were left in the breakroom and ‘up for grabs’ for anyone to take home. Not only did it bring together Atlas’s dedicated essential workers during a difficult time, it gave them the opportunity to bring home healthy, fresh produce daily – grown in their own backyard.
