On Saturday May 6th, the Confirmation Class and their mentors went to Shalom Farms for one of their mission service days. After a tour of the farm and an instruction into what they would be doing for the day, the youth and adults worked tirelessly on their hands and knees to harvest Collard Greens. After the first truck load was harvested, a small group of youth and mentors, broke off and went to the barn to prep the greens for transport. They cut the stems to a uniform size, washed them, and packed them in bins. During the three hours that they worked, the group harvested, cleaned, and packed over 700 pounds of Collard Greens for Feed More.
