Review for WAGNER FARM ARBORETUM INC, Warren Township, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was attracted to the Community Garden specifically because it included a Giving Garden. My husband and I started by 'adopting' one, then two plots, growing vegetables for several food banks. We have since become involved in the distribution of produce to four additional clients, including two soup kitchens in local urban communities. The numbers of people fed daily by these locations number in the hundreds.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Definitely

For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?

A lot

Did the organization use your time wisely?

Very Well

Would you recommend this group to a friend?

Definitely

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

Brought us into contact with the extensive poverty that exists within 20 miles of our affluent community

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

Useful! Being able to provide healthy, fresh vegetables for people who usually get only canned, fattening, unhealthy food is very satisfying.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2011

Role:  Volunteer & Grow vegetables and deliver produce.
