We had a beautiful, meaningful 9/11 Day of Service at the Hmong American Farmers Association (HAFA) Farm in September! VISTAs spent the day outside helping HAFA staff prepare for their 2nd Annual Open House, which took place that Sunday.
Together VISTAs painted event signs, unloaded furniture and a bouncy castle, cleaned the farmhouse, mowed the lawn, set up the hay wagon for rides and picked green beans for the event, among other activities.
HAFA staff appreciated our contributions. They stated that the work we accomplished in one day would have taken their team a week to finish!
