APRIL 22, 2012 Earth Day 2012: Tending to an organic farm of 4 acres
VT Seva Tampa volunteers helped the community on Earth Day by tending to a community farm. We partnered with the Sweetwater Organic farm, which is a non-profit community based farm. It operates where volunteers grow vegetables on the plots of land owned by the community. Then these grown vegetables are sold to people in the community for their welfare. It contributes to their welfare because they get organic food that doesn't have the harmful effects of pesticides and other chemicals that non-organic foods may contain. On Earth day, VT Seva Tampa volunteers from the ages of 5 to 63 came to help out the community. Everyone lent a hand in removing pesky weeds in the farm. This is an important task because the vegetables can't grow if there are too many weeds. All together there were over 30 dedicated volunteers who tended to the farm and had fun at the same time. The kids got together and made a game out of weeding the farm. It was as such; who ever pulled out the weeds the fastest in their row got a cupcake. This motivated all the kids to weed out the farm quickly and efficiently.
All volunteers worked with a great enthusiasm and removed weeds from 4 acres of land. The Sweetwater organization was spellbound with the great work done by the team in few hours. The whole activity was a great experience especially to all kids who learned a lot about the importance of the Mother Nature and more importantly why they need to protect it. Mr. Sridhar Gauravelli made the day more educational and interesting by conducting an ad-hoc quiz on Earth Day for all the kids. Seeing
the enthusiasm of the Kids, the farm management took them on a tour of the entire farm that consisted of various flowers, herbs, fruit trees, green houses and their well water system. Kids had loads of fun petting the animals on the farm too.
Mr. Kamal Sakamuri, VT Seva active volunteer from Tampa coordinated the activity and played a key role in organizing the event. Some of the pictures of the event are available at
