I was honored to have the opportunity to chat with a journalist from our local paper about the Community Garden plans!  Read the article here.

There is one correction….The garden is slated to be situated between the McFarland United Church of Christ and The Homestead, a housing complex (NOT A CEMETERY).  The rear border of the proposed garden plot is the Lower McFarland Cemetery.  I am asking that the editors of The Thistle make note of that correction in the next issue.
