Review for Thrive Upstate (Generous Garden Project), Greenville, SC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My 13yr son and I have volunteered for the Generous Garden Project since April 2011. We have worked through the hot SC summer and have not missed a single weekend!
For years I have given "non-perishables" to organizations with a bit of apprehension knowing that the canned veggies are loaded w/ sodium and preservatives.

Sugar Diabetes, obesity and high blood pressure are illnesses that disproportionally affect poor people, I've ofter wondered how are we perpetuating their ill health with our "good works" of giving.

Working in the Generous Garden lets me contribute to the poor in a wholesome, life giving, nourishing way!

May God Bless the vision, the leaders, and the hands in the Garden.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've dropped off veggies to soup kitchens and have seen the grateful & surprised looks on the workers faces!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make sure they had plenty of money to do what they needed to do.

Would you volunteer for this group again?
