On Saturday, October 20, Bruce Campbell and John Benson, both members of the Green Sanctuary Ministry Team, volunteered at the Food Project’s Lynn farm located next to the Ingalls School. It was a beautiful, sunny morning, as they helped prepare a portion of the beds for a late fall planting. Working side-by-side with the Food Project youth, they swept away dried vegetable matter, loosening the soil, and spread compost—and got to play with pitch forks!
The GSMT will be organizing future volunteer Food Project events next year. “Sign up to volunteer,” urges John, “you’ll be glad you did! You’ll love hanging out with the community of volunteers from our church as well as with the Food Project youth.”
The Food Project’s mission is to grow a thoughtful and productive community of youth and adults from diverse backgrounds who work together to build a sustainable food system. It produces healthy food for residents of the city and suburbs and provides youth leadership opportunities. See: http://thefoodproject.org/ .
