Arvest Bank Community Garden: Planting Urban Roots

Tucked next to the Arvest Bank on Blue Ridge Blvd in Kansas City, Mo. is a local community garden where Arvest associates work together to create community involvement and empowerment. This urban oasis can be a sigh of relief from the hustle and bustle of everyday life – for both the green thumbed volunteers who till the soil and those who reap the harvest.

The seed for these twelve raised beds was planted in 2014 when we recognized a need for proper access to nutrition and food in the community. Residents in the area have the opportunity to rent a bed, giving access to fresh fruit and vegetables in a community with little green space for growing.

With each season, Arvest is able to harvest an abundant amount of sweet potatoes and tomatoes of which is donated to Raytown Emergency Assistance Program (REAP). Their emergency food pantry strives to provide each family enough food to last two to three weeks. Arvest is proud to partner with REAP to help them meet this need.

Our volunteers have experienced many successful harvest seasons and anticipate this year being no different. This dedicated team of Arvest associates will soon begin preparing for the upcoming growing season.
