My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for The Urban Farmers, Lafayette, CA, USA
I first came to the know about Urban Farmers through my Food Politics class taught at Saint Mary's College of California. I had no idea what this organization did, but I soon learned. Urban Farmers is a non-profit organization that runs all on volunteer work. Many of the people who work there do it from the goodness of their heart. It has definitely taught me to appreciate my food and how one fruit tree can supply copious amounts of food for those that need it. I had never thought about how important the idea is of "picking fruit to help others who need it", but through countless harvesting, and Urban Farmers, I have come to a knew understanding of why it is needed.
When I harvest, I get a sense community. People from all over come to help harvest and that makes me smile. We are able to come together to get the job done. I feel that when we come together to help feed other people, it's very accomplishing to know that every little thing can help change the world. It may no be a big impact, but harvesting those fruits will help someone in need. At times its a lot of work and its tiring, but seeing how we all come together and help one another, now thats teamwork. Thats a community coming together. Lastly I hope that others will want to feel this sense of community and help the Urban Farmers, it could be a harvest, or reading this review. Any little thing that one can do, can always help those in need of food.
