Community Service Day: Bonton Farms

by | Jun 28, 2022

One of our key Carter Financial values is giving back to the community. We demonstrate that value by holding Community Service Days twice a year.

For the first time since the pandemic began, we were finally able to safely hold a Community Service Day, so we packed up our gloves, rakes, and shovels and ventured to Bonton Farms, where they strive to restore the community by providing healthy food, meaningful work, and an inspired sense of purpose.

We assisted with planting crops, learned about operating a sustainable farm, and provided socialization for some of the farm animals. The weather wasn’t very cooperative that day, but we had a blast – and it appears the animals did too!

We also enjoyed lunch at the Bonton Farms Market, their highly-rated restaurant and coffee shop nearby.
