Last week, The Farm at St. Joe’s celebrated ‘Mercy Make a Difference Day’ with numerous volunteers (students and teachers) from Mercy High School in Farmington Hills, Michigan. As part of the schools mission, all students are deployed throughout the community to ‘make a difference.’ We enjoyed every bright smile and eager attitude. In the past, Farmer Dan’s mother would come and help him remove the old tomato plants to get ready for winter planting. This year, the yound ladies did the same work in a matter of hours. They all worked so hard to clean up the Farm, harvest vegetables for farmer’s market and the patiet menu, clean up at Sisters’ house, and weed by the Imaging Center. We thank our crew, which also included Robin Damschroder’s son, Ginger Raymond, teachers, parents and students from Mercy High. These are future leaders who understand how food is grown and they will make a difference with the lessons learned at our farm. Thanks to all!
