How this cause brings people in the community together

During lockdown, our volunteers and young farmers have tended and harvested vegetable and fruit plots to create food boxes for families on low incomes that are known through our projects, or are referred to us. Our young farmers and youth assistants would like to continue this tradition, and create recipe cards for the families so that they can enjoy healthy, fresh meals.
