Volunteering on the farm is a great way to learn more about the work it takes to make sustainable food and spend some time connecting with the land that grows it.

“Odd as I am sure it will appear to some, I can think of no better form of personal involvement in the cure of the environment than that of gardening. A person who is growing a garden, if he is growing it organically, is improving a piece of the world. ”
