Do you love being out in the field, rescuing healthy produce from going to waste, and working with great people?
Society of St Andrew is a national non-profit gleaning organization working to rescue healthy food that might otherwise be wasted and provide it to those in need. The primary way we do that is to work with local farmers and arrange for volunteers to go into fields that have already been harvested to collect what is left. We then deliver the produce to local food pantries. Our regional office in Indiana is based in Indianapolis, but we glean across the whole state.

We're moving out of town and leaving behind our farm's camper trailer and wanted to offer it up to people in this group.
It's a 24' 1997 Coachmen Catalina Lite pull-behind trailer in which we replaced/repainted almost everything inside to make it a comfortable tiny home for ourselves.
It's in great shape with working AC, plumbing, electricity, no leaks, etc... a bedroom and kitchen sink, a surprisingly big mini fridge... a lot to love about it.
