Recently, 4Roots joined the Reinhold Corporation and the family of Paul and Klare Reinhold to provide improvements at Hope Charter School’s agriculture program.The family strives to be good stewards of the company’s assets and to build the family business through long term, ethical decision making which respects family, employees, community and the environment. 

Inspired by the generation that came before, every year since 1999, the Reinhold’s have participated in service projects and completed them as a family. These projects range from packing backpacks for the homeless, painting fire stations, gardening, and so much more. These projects cultivate philanthropy amongst the younger generations, setting the course for many service projects to come. With close to 50 family members in total, these projects are crucial to maintain the bond that giving back to the community elicits. 

“We were proud to partner with the Reinhold family to improve the grounds of Hope Charter School, ” said Carmen Gibson, Community Engagement Manager of Feed the Need. “We provided a bit of guidance for the farm tasks including weeding, seeding, mulching, etc. but this family came together and worked hard to benefit the Hope Charter community. We were blessed by their generosity.”

After a recent Board meeting, members of the 4Roots Governing and Advisory Board toured the Farm Campus to check on the progress of Phase I. The Education Building and Greenhouse are the first two elements to be constructed and are on schedule to open this fall. The Education Building will feature four, 30 seat flexible lab classrooms for hosting students, teachers, families, farmers, healthcare professionals, and more for hands-on learning activities related to food, farming, health, and sustainability.
