Who’s Afraid of a Little Dirt?

Carmen Sutter, an Adobe product manager at the Lehi office, didn’t show up to work in business attire today. Instead, she pulled on some sneakers, brushed her hair back into a ponytail and headed out to garden with nonprofit Tree Utah. Carmen and the Adobe Social team in Lehi are just some of the employees kicking off Adobe’s annual “Be Involved” month by volunteering in their communities throughout July. Teams across 23 sites are rolling up their sleeves for activities at various nonprofits dedicated to animals, children, the environment, people with disabilities and more, and so far 1,611 employees have pledged to participate.

Carmen and her team, including Steve Wirig, Devin Doxey and Zach Chatterton, joined Tree Utah to help out with weeding, mulching and building walls for EcoGarden, a community resource that demonstrates how trees can be used in urban landscaping for food, gardening and to benefit the environment.

Excited for the opportunity to create change, Carmen said she “absolutely [loves] Adobe’s commitment to volunteering and setting aside time for employees to be involved. Especially choosing local initiatives that allow us to give back to the communities we are a part of.”
