Zander (l) raking it in

Today my group visited the recirculating farms coalition. The farm is right in the middle of a food desert, a place where people don’t have access to fresh fruits and vegetables. Recirculating farms grows organic fruits and vegetables athat they sell to the residents of the food dessert at a reduced price. When we went to visit them we helped around however they needed us to. We did many different small tasks that need to be done on a daily basis to allow the farm run smoothly.  It was really nice knowing we played a part in providing cheap healthy food to people who previously had no access what so ever to fresh food.
