Growing Healthy Communities

A hospital and a Farm Credit service cooperative may seem like an odd match, but in Olivia, Minnesota, a partnership has blossomed. United FCS turned part of its property here into a community garden where volunteers and employees use the space for education and nourishment, and RC Hospital and Clinics transports the produce from the garden to offer at its facility. Patients know they are getting the freshest quality fruits and vegetables when it comes straight from the fields that day. This nonprofit project came directly from the employees at United FCS who wanted to make their town a better place. #ourcooperativestory

That’s kind of been our mantra from the beginning, serving our community in our area.
