beets New Work



Takeda Pharmaceuticals U.S.A, Inc.

Health, wellness, and sustainability are at the core of Takeda’s mission, and an on-site organic garden seemed a natural extension of those values for their Deerfield, Illinois headquarters. In 2014, we built the 1,624 square-foot raised bed vegetable garden, putting effort into a creative design that echoes the style and lines of the LEED certified modern building. Produce harvested by our team supports the on-site cafeteria operated by Guckenheimer, a corporate dining service devoted to employee wellness via quality fresh foods.

We’ve developed a collaborative relationship with the entire Takeda team, not only throughout the design and maintenance process, but in establishing garden programming that puts their values into action. Takeda employees are invited to be a part of the garden with regular workshops and open tours led by our educators. Takeda has taken a cutting edge approach to corporate wellness, and we’re excited to be a part of this project.
