Review for The Urban Farmers, Lafayette, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have thoroughly enjoyed every harvest that I have worked at with the Urban Farmers, and I have gained valuable insight from each event. One of the most important things I have learned is that there really is a difference between food grown organically and in your own backyard versus buying food at the grocery store. The apples at a grocery store are so bland and flavorless in comparison to the apples I have tasted during the harvests.

Another important thing I have learned from working with the Urban Farmers is the importance of being in a community. I am a college student and spend a lot of time by myself studying. The Urban Farmers allows me to connect with my community in a way that benefits other people, and brings me joy and gratitude because I get to connect to other human beings.
