Spent a good part of the day at Camp Twin Lakes in Rutledge. I'm a part of the Farm Task Committee. After our meeting we took a tour of all they've accomplished in the last couple of months. So incredibly moving to think that only two years ago they came to visit Lazy B to see what we do here and asking if they could duplicate it on hundreds of acres to make their camp more self-sufficient. They are using all of their own ground beef, vegetables from the gardens, cheese f...rom the goats, and eggs from their own chickens! And they feed hundreds of staff and children each week. This week is Sunshine week - all the campers have or have had cancer. Talk about inspiration!! This group was why Camp Twin Lakes exists today and ministers to so many children with some sort of disability. And now the farm is part of their camping experience. What a humbling privilege to be a part of a team of such amazing men and women.

Ladies - for our November meeting, I've asked my friend Amanda Tedrow to come and speak. She also happens to be the head person for the Athens-Clark County Extension She knows so much! Anyway, take pics of plants you're not sure of, be sure to get flowers if possible, leaves, the whole plant and notate where it's growing (sunny - shade, wet - dry, etc). Thinking about compiling them to a power point and asking her to identify them or if someone else in the group would know
Hey Ladies - Talked with Lisa Cisson today and she'll be attending the brunch here at the farm on the 15th! Sooo, if you have items for Helping Hands, bring them along and she'll take them home with her
