An FRB Volunteer’s Story
One warm spring day after church, my wife, Gladys, and I stopped at the table on the lawn manned by Marv Baldwin. He was explaining the Growing Project that was a joint endeavor between our First Congregational Church of Western Springs, IL and Park Congregational Church of Mazon, IL. Mazon is a farmland town about fifty miles from our church in suburban Chicago. He told us that FRB was tackling world hunger by helping third world villages establish sustainable improved agriculture that will allow them to feed themselves, earn a modest income and be able to pass along their new-found expertise to neighboring villages.
