The Howdy Farm would like to extend a huge thank you to Texas A&M Aggie Gentlemen of Integrity (AGI) for the hard work the men put in at the farm last Wednesday. We had about fifty of the organization's members and pledges help with weeding and mulching of various beds throughout the farm.
After what could be considered a challenging winter for the farm, it has been a long process cleaning up the aftermath of the frost. The Howdy Farm is thankful for the willingness of groups like Texas A&M AGI to assist us in preparing the grounds for planting again.
Texas A&M AGI is a men's organization focused on character development, philanthropy, accountability, selfless service, and integrity. Sergio Rivera, Texas A&M AGI's Public Relations Chair, said the organization has volunteered at the Howdy Farm in the past, and plans to make it a regular service event for members to participate in. He sees serving at the Howdy Farm as a great way to build camaraderie among the members.
"Being out there in the Texas heat sweating together really unites a team," Rivera said, "and being able to help a community that has done so much for us really makes the service valuable and rewarding."
If your organization is interested in volunteering at the farm in a group format, please see our new volunteer sign ups to register!
