Willing Hands is a charitable organization that collects and gleans fresh food and redistributes it to individuals and organizations that have need and food that otherwise might go to waste. More importantly, they provide a necessary link for local farms to those of need in busy seasonal times when there is extra produce available and not enough free hands around to do charitable work. Oftentimes they will come on farm to to actually glean or harvest what might otherwise be left in the field.
Edgewater Farm has strong ties to Willing Hands. Many tons of extra produce or produce of lesser cosmetic quality is donated by us annually. Pooh currently serves on the Board of Directors of the organization and strongly believes in Willing Hands mission statement as well as it’s “boots on the ground” daily operation and management.
Willing Hands can exist only through the generous financial support of the community, its ties to local agriculture and the donation of community sweat equity. To read more about Willing Hand please go to this link: www.willinghands.org
