Gaining Ground is a non-profit farm in Concord Massachusetts. Together with hundreds of community volunteers Gaining Ground grows over 150 varieties of organic fruits and vegetables which are donated to food pantries, meal programs and shelters in Greater Boston and Eastern Massachusetts. Gaining Ground’s local approach means that most of the produce is distributed within 20 miles of the farm and within 24 hours of being harvested.
Volunteers from Athena Capital spent their day as farmers weeding pepper plants, setting up drip irrigation hoses, and hilling a field of potatoes.
