The smiling faces in this very “green” photo are this summer’s cohort of Amir Farmers who have just completed their seminar before departing for summer camps across this country and in Israel. As Amir Farmers each of these young men and women will teach campers about the very essence of tikkun olam; about hunger, poverty and the imperative that we care for and serve those around us. It was an honor for the Good People Fund to support Amir’s founder, David Fox, and underwrite the week’s seminar. As David recently wrote, “ the act of gardening can have a profound impact on individuals and the larger social fabric of society. It is our imperative… to further access to garden-based education for as many people as possible. My vision is that Amir will serve as a vehicle that provides all people the ability to build gardens and grow communities.” We love David’s vision as well as the fact that all of the very healthy veggies and fruits grown in many of these gardens will be donated to local food pantries where they will feed hungry people.
