They were a group of youth from College Park Baptist who turned their cancelled summer trip to New Orleans into lemonade and came to work, learn, and listen on the land. They were able to accomplish so... read more »

We plant the cloves in late October/early... read more »

Changes in the air

I know we are all feeling it.

It's hard right now to see beyond your footsteps. Today, as with... read more »

Pick Strawberries and enjoy the summer weather!

Posted on June 12th, 2020
I wanted to invite everyone out this weekend, sunrise to sunset, Saturday and Sunday, to pick all of the strawberries you'd like!

Check out this adorable baby cucumber! We worked hard this year to plant cucumber varieties that mean good... read more »
