I actually don't have enough words to describe how wonderful this experience was. I was able to make fond memories that I won't forget so easily. I also met amazing people that made feel like home and loved. One of the best part about Gleanings is meeting other backpackers and learning about their lifestyle and home culture. I became friends with some of the staff members and I feel confident to recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a peaceful environment and wants to have a experience living like a local.
Gleanings is a blessed place, in all aspects. Here you will meet lovely people engaged in such a noble cause. You can help in many ways: carpintery, kitchen, sewing or making soup. It's a community that will treat you like family and will feed you like a son too! Be prepared to eat a lot and good food. I'm so glad of being part of this, even for a while. Know that my work will help to feed those in need is so gratifying. Thanks for this unique experience!
I was so sad to say goodbye to this place.
I'm so glad I was part of this mission for hungry people around the world. My time at Gleanings was by far the best experience in my life, it's a very blessed place, full of the kindest people I've ever known.
I really hope I can go back to help and see my new family (yes, I have a new family now!) again.
If you're still thinking about going to Gleanings, just stop. You should go!
Thank you Gleanings, for everything!
I already have a new family at Gleanings! :)
LOVE the experience, work with the peaches, work in the kitchen and met so awesome people of the Staff and the churches.
Without religions, language and beliefs, I think Gleanings is a wonderful place to learn about humanity and yourself. Also, they make you feel like family since the very first moment.
Definitely recommend it!!!
Thank you Gleanings :)
