The Going Green Foundation
March 12, 2011

It seems that all a novice gardenner in Dearborn MI., needs is an invitation to help with this neighborhood organization's farm and they jump right. But the part I like is that parents who dedicate time to the project bring their children and before long, the children are pitching in. To see little ones digging in the huge piles of soil, having no destination in mind for the dirt but having fun, is great. Watching a child pull on something green in the bed and see something orange come out is a mystery being solved in one moment in time. These are the small victories in the huge overall plan to feed hungry people that is the goal of the Going Green Foundation.
