On the second Saturday of each month, volunteers of all ages spend the morning at work at Shalom Farms in order to provide fresh produce to low-income neighborhoods in Richmond.
On Saturday, July 16th, we had the largest group from Trinity participate since we embraced Shalom Farms as one of our “Trinity in Richmond” projects. The group harvested tomatoes, (lots and lots of them!), weeded sweet potatoes, cleaned and prepared a hoop house for planting, and readied potatoes for digging. It was a fun and productive morning.
Trinity Volunteers will be heading to Shalom Farms in Western Goochland County on Saturday,
August 20. We will meet in the Stuart Hall Parking lot at 8 AM and return around 12:30 PM. This is a wonderful opportunity for those of all ages who love the outdoors to help with Shalom’s mission of raising and providing produce to families who do not have access to fresh fruits and vegetables.
