The Seeds of Learning US office is located in Sonoma, CA. The devastating Northern California wildfires which burned in October of 2017 affected all of the people living in the North Bay Area. In the aftermath of the fires, some of our volunteers looked for ways they could help neighbors and community members. SOL board member Mark Etherington has led many work groups to Central America, and understands that at the heart of every SOL volunteer is a desire to make a difference and work together for the common good. With this in mind, Mark reached out to SOL volunteers to coordinate a way for us to directly participate in the recovery efforts in our local community. Under Mark’s leadership, groups of volunteers from SOL and beyond volunteer at the Redwood Empire Food Bank (REFB) the third Saturday of each month. Please contact us if you would like to participate at firstname.lastname@example.org. A huge thanks to Mark and the many volunteers who have participated in these projects!
