I heard about the charity Urban Farming from my Vamps co-star Richard Lewis’ wife and wanted to share! Urban Farming is based in Detroit, but they work in communities throughout America, planting food in unused land for neighborhoods to enjoy. Urban Farming encourages donations to food banks, and they also work with schools, where they teach about green farming and “green-collar” jobs. FYI – A green collar job is a job that pays decent wages and has benefits that can support a family. It also has to be part of a real career path, with upward mobility, and it needs to reduce waste and pollution and benefit the environment.
