Genius Students Grow Food For Homeless Neighbors.
Sometimes, when students can stop texting and playing video games for awhile, they can actually do some pretty awesome things.
In Washington, D.C., in the middle of the busy Foggy Bottom neighborhood, there’s a good chance you might find George Washington University students Isabelle Moody and Elizabeth Ferrante digging up dirt.
But not the kind we’re all associated with in Washington. This is real dirt. They’re not looking for valuable metals or coins, and they’re not just doing it for fun. They doing it to plant some vegetables. And they’re doing THAT for a pretty good reason… to help feed the city’s homeless population.
Back in 2009, the university launched its GroW Garden, and more recently what’s grown in that garden has been helping the homeless. When the crops are harvested each week, they can yield up to 40 pounds. They are then put in a wagon and wheeled to the nearby Miriam’s Kitchen, which cooks meals for the homeless. Among the vegetables grown are kale, Swiss chard, squash, zucchini and cherry tomatoes.
