Last Friday, the sweetgreen corporate team and store managers made their way to Arcadia Farms in Alexandria, VA. Once there, the team split up and began working on different areas of the farm. Arcadia is a educational farm “dedicated to creating a more equitable and sustainable food system.” The sweetgreen team was able to help out by weeding, composting, raking, and moving the chicken house. Some of us were even able to help collect heirloom tomatoes, a key ingredient in our July salad.
