PEABODY, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) —Volunteers filed the fields of Newhall Fields Community Farm for a "Day of Giving" to help bring in the harvest.
A couple dozen volunteers from the Peabody-based human service agency, Bridgewell, got their hands dirty in the soil on Thursday, all for a good cause.
Christopher Tuttle is the CEO of Bridgewell and says they enjoy being a part of the community. "I think it's important for our individuals, our staff and everybody to realize we are one large community especially during these times," said Tuttle.
He added the only way to get through tough times is with the support of the people around us. Newhall is a non-profit farm that contributes produce to community food pantries.
The volunteers did fall clean-up work and brought in the harvest of kale, collard greens and herbs.
Tuttle added 80 percent of what Newhall grows goes back to the Peabody community.
