Dozens in Petaluma spend King Day volunteering

Although young, Rain and River Anderson, are no strangers to working on a farm.

Their mother, Molly Anderson of Petaluma, said her daughter Rain, 5, and son River, 3, help feed the family's ducks and chickens at home.

Bounty Farm Volunteer Day


On Monday, the family, including 6-month old Reef in a harness on Anderson's back, spent their Martin Luther King Jr. holiday volunteering at Petaluma Bounty's community farm.

The older siblings loaded child-size wheelbarrows with mulch from a pile, pushed them over to a grassy area, unloaded and spread the dark ground cover around.

The Andersons were among about four dozen volunteers who, in the King spirit of "a day on, not a day off," helped with seasonal duties at the nonprofit farm.
