A Jet Blue airlines crew has found a great way to deal with the intense stresses of their jobs. They started a garden at JFK Airport.
The garden is attracting many employees to volunteer for planting and harvest. When the Terminal 5 farm launched in 2015, about 420 volunteer slots were offered on Fridays between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. from May through October. That number more than doubled in 2016, to 1,145 — and has now skyrocketed to 1,728 slots filling up fast.
In case you’re wondering how the garden is set up, all the plants are grown inside milk crates.
Employees are glad to have this distraction, with one noting “Work can be stressful a lot of the time, but gardening helps me keep a positive mind-set.”Source: New York Post
