7 year old you

7 year old you

Seven year-old me was an overly confident artist, an enthusiastic jump-roper, and an expert snow fort engineer (yeah, I’m from Wisconsin). But California youth dream of frosty hideouts, too. Last weekend, my friend Damita compared Veggielution’s kitchen to Elsa’s ice castle while she hunted for bugs in the bed where we were planting violas.

August Volunteer of the Month - Savanna

Meet Savanna! She is a student at the University of Tampa and is also August's Volunteer of the Month! She has dedicated her time to Veggielution since she was in high school and has been coming in steadily every Friday and Saturday since May. Her favorite task to take on when at Veggielution is harvesting, since it's a lighter one.

One of the best things about coming to Veggielution, in her opinion, is hanging out with all the other volunteers and staff. She's had the opportunity of getting to know some of the people more personally and spent time with them outside of Veggielution. She enjoys watching the interactions between the employees and interns, how they joke around with each other. Aside from building new friendships through her time spent here, she also appreciates being part of what Veggielution does. As she said it's "not only change you can see, but change you can do." 

If Savanna could be any vegetable, she said she would be a carrot. Carrots are one of her favorite vegetable and they taste good. Also, carrots are fun to harvest!

All her effort and time spent at Veggielution is greatly appreciated. It's definitely been a pleasure getting to know Savanna better and we hope she continues to volunteer on the farm!
