County Produce farm land at the Great Park.. Volunteers came from Saddleback Church,Giving

Children Hope and volunteers from State Senator Lou Correa’s office led by Asia Cunningham

there District Director. Many of the volunteers from the Senators office had never been on a

farm before so they were in for a treat. AG Kawamura owner of Orange County Produce stopped

by to see what was happening and even took some time to do a video with the president of

Another opportunity to pick beautiful strawberries this coming Saturday 7/6/13 at the Great Park…

 

MPORTANT NOTICE… All volunteers must be at the designated area no later

than 8:45 am, This will allow us to check waivers and then caravan to the 

designated area to glean. Volunteers that come after we have left to the area

we ask that they do not drive on the park looking for everybody. This will then

be a safety issue for L&F 10,The farmer and The Great Park. We also asked that

organization leaders and volunteers do not give directions to the site if they

are called on there phone by late participators. Accidents and injuries are our

number one concern.
