The Free Farm

Love all, serve all, feed all. — Neem Karoli Baba

~~~~ Good News of the Day: The Free Farm in San Francisco, run fully by volunteers, is dedicated to bringing fresh, local, organic produce for free to under-served communities in the San Francisco area. In 2009 alone, they gifted over 20,000 lbs of produce. A remarkable activist describes his experience in serving at the Free Farm. “We are not growing fruits and veggies. We are facilitating the growth of soil and community. The food is a by-product. We’re mostly giving back to Mother Earth, and in the process, enjoying the co-creation of noble friendship. This is the revelation I got when I met “Tree” (the founder of the Free Farm). From my perspective, this is Gandhi’s constructive program at its best, revamped for the 21st century. Gandhi used the spinning wheel as both physical embodiment and symbol for radical change. Today, the foundation for social justice is local and healthy food — our “spinning wheel” for the 21st century.”

~~~~ Be The Change: Write a note of support / gratitude to “Tree” of the Free Farm for starting this amazing community project.
