OPC on the Move: 20+20=40

2020-02-10T10:44:43-08:00February 10th, 2020|Newsletter|

Turning 40 is as much an indicator of our future as it is a reflection of our past. More than anything, this milestone anniversary as a company reflects our strength and stability.

Back in October of 1980, OPC had a vision of creating a right of way services company with a culture that rewarded integrity, respect, innovation, teamwork, and excellence.

This year, we will be celebrating our past by remembering how we have been able to grow through the years, sharing what we have learned, and committing ourselves to continued growth. Anniversaries are a natural time for reflection. As we look back at the success that OPC has sustained, we say “thank you” to all of the clients that we have served.

Looking forward, OPC has plans for continued expansion. We are always on the lookout for experienced right of way professionals, along with talented newcomers. Please visit OPCservices.com/careers/ for exciting opportunities to join our team!

OPC’s Maria Brief Attends Farm-to-Table Dinner Fundraiser at The Growing Experience

2019-12-02T08:05:01-08:00November 27th, 2019|News|

On the southwest corner of the Carmelitos Public Housing Community campus, a Los Angeles County Development Authority (LACDA) public housing site, lies a little piece of heaven called The Growing Experience. This urban farm and community garden provides access to locally grown, organic fruits and vegetables to a community that has been traditionally under-served. The Growing Experience urban farm also provides education and enrichment opportunities to the community, offers a safe green space for recreation, and promotes community building while serving as a model for sustainability.

Maria Brief, Marketing Manager at OPC, saw first-hand how this little piece of land in the Carmelitos Public Housing Community can provide so much nourishment for the community, both nutritionally and holistically.  She attended the 10th Annual Farm to Table Dinner fundraiser last month, hosted by The Growing Experience in partnership with Primal Alchemy Catering. The guests enjoyed the creations of top chefs from the Long Beach area who volunteered their time and expertise to prepare dishes using the fruits and vegetables that were grown on site, highlighting the importance of urban farming and sustainable, locally-sourced produce.

The proceeds from the fundraiser goes directly to support the expansion of The Growing Experience’s Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Program, farm stand, and community programs.

“I hope to continue supporting the Carmelitos Public Housing Community, the LACDA, and the Growing Experience urban farm by attending future fundraisers,” Maria shared. “It’s an excellent opportunity to increase awareness of the efforts to help the community of low income families through gourmet, healthy foods.”
