Rising Stars Amateur Generous Garden Project

Rising Stars Amateur completed their second community service project for the year on Saturday, May 11.

Their team worked at the Generous Garden Project, which grows fresh vegetables and produce. The Generous Garden Project partners with local charities to deliver food to people in need. According to their website, they started in April 2011 and have produced over 102,979 pounds of produce (over 100,000 meals) with the help of 3,000+ volunteers.

Our girls worked for two hours weeding, digging rows, planting watermelons, transplanting seedlings and watering the plants.

They were given a tour of the unique way they grow produce in water and had the chance to dig in the dirt for worms!

This was very different from how our girls usually spend their weekends! Most of the girls had never worked in a garden before, so it was a learning experience as well. At the end of the day, they were dirty and tired but very, very happy to have contributed to the cause.
