Help God's Little Acre Farm feed those in need

February 4, 2015

God's Little Acre Farm in Surrey, British Columbia is a beautiful thing - a volunteer-run farm that grows food for those in need. And they grow it well - in the past four years they have donated a whopping 420,000 pounds of fresh, BC-grown produce to those less fortunate.

And they're just getting started - the man behind this incredible effort, Jas Singh, wants to increase production and fill more of the vacent acres available to farm with vegetable plants. Singh runs God's Little Acre with the help of volunteers, some for a few days, others returning throughout the season to help grow crops from seed to harvest. He has a shoestring budget coming from his own pocket and uses the proceeds on the onsite farmstard and donations to keep production going (and expanding!).

But this year the farm needs tractors to grow more food for hungry individuals and charity organizations. And those of us that are lucky enough to live above the poverty line can help with donations to the God's Little Acre GoFundMe crowd-funding project. Raising a total of $50,000 will allow the farm to purchase two tractors and the fuel to run them for a season, allowing this inspirational little farm to grow so much more produce for those in need. They have a goal for growing 150,000 pounds of fresh food to donate this year, and you can be a part of their success.

Skip a take-out meal this week and donate the money to God's Little Acre instead, let's show Jas Singh and the entire God's Little Acre volunteer family that Canada supports their efforts to be part of the solution to hunger in our country!

Play inmtofarive for me, Mr. internet writer.

You keep it up now, understand? Really good to know.

This does look promising. I'll keep coming back for more.

Thanks for introducing a little rationality into this debate.

Hey, that post leaves me feeling foolish. Kudos to you!

Free knowledge like this doesn't just help, it promote democracy. Thank you.

I could read a book about this without finding such real-world approaches!

Boom shakalaka boom boom, problem solved.

To think, I was confused a minute ago.

At last some rationality in our little debate.
