2015 - Camp Pierce volunteers and staff named Volunteer Group of the Month for August by the Emergency Food Network
At Mother Earth Farm, they freed up weedy rhubarb for food banks and lavender for pollinators, shelled hundreds of dry beans and composted old seedlings. At the Repack Project, they repackaged 2,400 pounds of oats. The hard work and support by Camp Pierce volunteers and staff were truly an inspiring example that we will carry with us the rest of summer!
