Sage Plant-Based Bistro’s farm, Sow a Heart Farm, is giving free produce to underprivileged youth in partnership with New Earth. The nonprofit organization New Earth was created to support young people who are aging out of the foster care system or who were formerly incarcerated. The program provides arts and educational programs, enrichment opportunities, mentorships, and job training programs to assist these individuals in their transition to adulthood.
Every Monday, a group from New Earth takes a trip to Sow a Heart to enjoy a day on the farm and pick produce. The youth get to take home everything they harvest that day for free! Aside from this weekly initiative, Sow a Heart also offers a way for consumers to donate produce boxes to New Earth. With the new produce delivery app CropSwap, customers have the option to buy a box and donate a box from Sow a Heart. Each produce box comes loaded with 40 pounds of fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs, and more!
