My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for The Urban Farmers, Lafayette, CA, USA
I have been volunteering with this organization since their first year. They started in Lafayette and have now expanded to serve a lot of Contra Costa County, with new sub-groups in Solono & Alameda County. This is due to the vision of one man’s family and his passion for sustainable food practices. I have learned a lot about sustainable food practices, basics of fruit tree pruning and food waste issues. Along the way I have worked with wonderful people, made new friends, helped my community and gotten good exercise. This is a great organization, working at a grassroots level that is really helping their communities. Everyone benefits in some way from the work they do. From the home owner that has way more fruit than they can use, the volunteer (some have never picked and eaten a fresh piece of fruit in their life), the community organizations that are trying to help feed folks in need, to the person that received the fruit to eat. My experiences with The Urban Farmers have been life changing and incredibly rewarding. This organization is deserving of your support.
