My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for The Urban Farmers, Lafayette, CA, USA
I was first introduced to Urban Farmers through a Food Politics class at Saint Mary's College - and the experiences that I have experienced volunteering with this organization have been astronomical. Not only does Urban Farmers create a community setting within people in your neighborhood or peers, but volunteering has also taught me about gardening, composting, and larger picture facts regarding how we receive the food on our table. By removing unwanted fruit from backyards, we not only help home-owners but also help the hungry by giving them fresh fruit and vegetables. This organization prevents waste and does amazing things for the community.
I will continue to volunteer with Urban Farmers after my course at the college is over, and I recommend others to join this organization as well. UF has taught me so many valuable lessons, and there is more to come with each harvest!
