Last night we held our third annual fall harvest celebration picnic and it was AWESOME !!! We had forty seven of our members attend all who brought dishes prepared form their gardens and or live stock provided by Red Bird Mission and Grow Appalachia. Our total attendance including family members and non- members top over sixty people coming together in fellowship over great healthy local grown food.

Chad Addressing the huge crowd


Last night’s group was all very excited to be there and I could obviously see the growth of community among these members.  They were all networking, sharing  garden ideal, problems and answers, canning recipes and tricks of the trade.  A few of them even shared things with each other such as , homemade butter, milk, blackberries and honey.
