Quality Greens earns honour

Company making a difference by providing employment to people with developmental disabilities

For 22 years, Venture Training and Silver Star Rotary Club have teamed up to honour local businesses that make a difference by providing employment to people with developmental disabilities.

And this year, Quality Greens Farm Market has been recognized as employer of the year.

Quality Greens has been offering employment to individuals with Venture’s community employment program for more than four years.

“The results have been great for everyone involved,” said Ed Columbus, with Venture Training.

Quality Greens officials say they are pleased to be part of the program.

“We have really enjoyed working with Venture community employment to provide work for individuals in our community,” said Melaney Kothlow , human resources manager.

Venture provides support to individuals with developmental disabilities and employers by trying to match an employer and job-seeker together.
