“Shiloh Field, at 14.5 acres, is the largest community garden in the USA... The quality of crop that Shiloh Field produces and donates is pure, homegrown, healthful organic food free from chemicals and fresh from the garden... Over 14 local charities, food banks, and non-profits receive crop donations from Shiloh Field. Amazing!”

“KidKnits was founded by a nine-year-old knitter, Ellie Zika... I am awestruck by the great work that the organization does... Through the fair trade import of handspun yarn from women living and working in poverty in developing countries, KidKnits offers a simple craft kit for a student that is integrated with a comprehensive service learning."
