An Opportunity to Grow

This is Maung Chit, one of the many senior gardeners at Akron Cooperative Farms. As a member of the Karen Community in Akron, this cooperative farm gives Maung Chit an outlet to continue practicing his agricultural traditions. He will typically stop by the farm twice a day, not only tending to his own garden, but helping with the general upkeep required to maintain and beautify the land. Maung Chit is a valued member of the Akron Cooperative Farm family, and values his time at the farm. 

There are more community members like Maung Chit who have expressed a clear interest in cultivating their own plot of land at Akron Cooperative Farms. Help us make that hope a reality, by joining in our More Than Land campaign, made possible through A Community Thrives. We are on our way to our $10,000 goal, but only have 12 days left in the campaign. Consider donating by clicking on the link below, and help spread the word by forwarding Maung Chit's story to your friends and family. By giving, you could be a part of providing senior citizens with meaningful pastimes and preserving cultural traditions.
