Today was another successful day at Grow Good. I relocated beet plants this time. Fun fact: I love nearly all fruits and veggies except beets and papaya. I don’t mind planting them though hehe.
What is GrowGood you ask? It’s a non-profit organization that has been working in partnership with The Salvation Army to transform and maintain a 1.5-acre parcel of land adjacent to The Salvation Army's Bell Homeless Shelter into an urban farm. They provide transitional care for up to 500 homeless men, women and Veterans.
They provide fresh fruits and veggies for the residents at The Salvation Army’s Shelter.
They offer paid employment opportunities for residents through their Transitional Employment Program (TEP).
They provide Food for Life Skill classes to promote healthy habits through yoga and meditation.
Also, their GrowGood's Culinary Program with Farm-to-Table offer’s an eight week of kitchen job-preparedness training for shelter clients, a two-week externship and job placement assistance.
Organizations like this motivate me and encourage me to help our community and improve myself on a daily basis. You want to make a difference then go out and volunteer. You can make a difference! I encourage you guys to put your hobbies and your likes into action for your community. If farming isn’t up your alley maybe try your local animal shelter (so many cute kitties and pups needing love) or if you love children maybe volunteer at your local library to read to kids. They love it!
Thanks again @grow_good for allowing me to help you guys better our city one beet plant at a time. See you next week!
Feeling poetic! Writing has always calmed me, stress, worries, shit that just ain’t going right! An event or occurrence. Sometimes no reasoning sometimes there is. That’s what I love about it, when someone reads and says” What the Fuck does that mean!”,then read it again and it’s” Ohhhh ok!”
And if it brings a smile, a laugh, or even a tear, I’ve done well!#poet#poetry#arizona#calm#happyplace
This morning, I woke up in Mexico 🇲🇽 , I ate tacos 🌮 for breakfast and I spent the day playing tourists and visiting amazing places with mexico’s best travel guide 📸. I really feel like the luckiest girl in the world 🌎 #blessed#happyplace#cdmx
Just spent 2 uninterrupted hours with @michelleobama #becoming What a story... It’s relatable, yet you are in aw of her journey. I’ve been able to feel all the feels along the way and felt my smile widen with stories inside her childhood and meeting her husband and tears come to my eyes as she struggled with the balance of motherhood and being a wife to a man that is a workaholic but loves what he does. Not done yet but so enjoying this journey and especially love the Chicago she praises and the winters she describes perfectly. #bookworm#happyplace#nowbacktomybabies#mamashome

So, I guess you could say Santa came early to our house - Willie got a half sleeve, I got a Peloton Bike and we got orders to Fort Bragg. SURPRISE!
After 6 years in Savannah we are super stoked to say that we will be moving to North Carolina come the new year! We have been full swing into little house repairs, getting our house ready to list, packing and reading up on all the new hiking and kayaking we will be getting to do!
Any have some killer tips on moving or selling a house? Or if anyone happens to live it that area, I’d love to be your new friend; I think I’m pretty darn cool 🤙🏽
