On Saturday, AARPCV participated in their second quarter community service activity in support of the Global Growers
Network, an organization that connects international farmers who now live in Georgia to agriculture, by growing good food,
training farmers, and creating economic opportunities. Global Growers Network works primarily with metro-Atlanta's refugee
communities, who have been forced to flee their home countries due to war, genocide and persecution. Nine AARPCV members
volunteered with another group on Bamboo Creek Farm. AARPCV members worked to harvest carrots, pull and haul weeds,
dig trenches, and wash some of the harvest. Harvests support farmer families, Global Growers CSA, and local restaurants.
AARPCV's Volunteer Committee would like to thank Andrea Ness at Global Growers Network for partnering on this inspiring
community service opportunity. Also, thank you to all the dedicated AARPCV members that volunteered their time and energy
on a cold and rainy Saturday morning to support local refugee farmers as well as the local food community.
