As luck or divinity would have it we were standing in line with a gentleman that ran an organic farm and farmer’s market where he helped rehab homeless people into society.
This is just one of the many upcoming opportunities to volunteer that we are affording through Surfr. To close it out, I surfed a few more days and we visited the farmers market after hearing about Jose and his farm.
