      The members and volunteers of this organization are truly amazing and they know how to get things done! See BULLET #4
      Furthermore, there were 120 people that attended the seven workshops and special events (ex: Holiday Teas) and 187 youth that visited the farm for 4th grade field trips or summer camp sessions. Stay tuned for more fun in 2018.
