Why I volunteer with Growing Home

Joy Moon is a loyal Growing Home volunteer. She has been a valuable member of the Growing Home community for two years, and we are grateful to have her!


Two years ago, I started volunteering at Growing Home’s Les Brown Farm in Marseilles because I wanted to learn about organic farming.  I also wanted to help because I believe we need fresh and healthy options in our food choices.  Over these last couple of years, I have learned about vegetables that I had never heard of, such as bok choy.  I have learned when and how to plant garlic.  I was taught what a scape is and how to use it.  I have learned what hard work farming is.  Not that I did not already know this, but it is often only by doing that we really learn something.
