“I only expected 100 helpers this morning, but I see more than 500 volunteers,” Jas Singh, owner of God’s Little Acre, told me.

My family and I read his plea for help in the Peace Arch News.

We decided to take the whole family to help him weed and harvest his great crop of organically grown vegetables. He was donating lots of his surplus crop of zucchinis, potatoes, carrots, cucumbers, etc. to the local food banks.

A great cause to help the needy, his pleas were answered by many local – and not so local – residents.

It was a great day to be outdoors for work, fresh air and exercise. Everyone, young and old, looked well prepared to help this local farmer weed his many fields of healthy produce.

It was a learning experience for the very young and fun for all who were there to help.
