Yesterday was time for fall clean up
At Faith Farm.
It’s been an astounding first year of
“Gardening for Good”.
We will soon surpass 3,000 pounds of fresh organic produce
Grown for Loaves & Fishes
And given to our hungry clients each week.
Freshly picked, organic produce
Given to people who otherwise might not have food on the table.
Week after week, Charity and a small group of volunteers
Have harvested literal 1 1/2 tons of food.
And it’s a good thing
Since July was the busiest month ever at L & F
Serving 954 households…YIKES!
But we want to do more
With the space we have.
So yesterday we began a simple transition
From less ornamentals
To more raised beds.
We moved some from L & F
Over to Faith Farm
And set them in place
With the help of Jim
Our perennial volunteer
And a couple of friends from the Air Force base.
We were also joined by a group of young women
From the 2020 club at Chisholm Middle School
They’ll graduate in the year 2020
Which gives us lots of time to train them
They have great potential
Because even a big ole tomato horn worm
Didn’t scare them.
Instead they were fascinated.
Gotta love girls who likes bugs!
They were all great help
So I hope they’ll be back
For another installment
Of this great adventure.
Feeding the hungry
Fresh, organic vegetables
And lots of love.
