Global Volunteers Earthbox Drive

In support of World Food Day, Global Volunteers is hosting an "Earthbox" drive to help eradicate hunger in developing communities worldwide.   

Earthboxes offer a simple solution to help alleviate hunger, improve food security and address micro-nutrient deficiencies as well as provide an educational tool for children to learn practical agricultural lessons. Learning becomes real and relevant for the children. Earthboxes promote active, applied learning, and are an effective means for transferring agricultural technology and skills while the children have fun growing their own fruits and vegetables.
 
By making a tax deductible donation to the Earthbox Fund you will help children reach their full potential.  Donate an Earthbox!  The drive will begin on World Food Day and end on December 6, 2014 the day of our 30th Anniversary Gala -- Global Volunteers -- Plant-Nurture-Flourish.
