Mother Daughter Gardening

Wilma and Liane are a mother-daughter duo and new neighbors in our community! We welcome them as they take root and branch out in our agrihood.

Family Carpentry

Colleen Owen, our Urban Farmer,  has done it yet again, she's turned something she found into an absolutely gorgeous addition to the agrihood. It's all about word-of-mouth, having a knack for knowing how to find precious materials that may be destined for the trash heap, skill and creativity. Oh, and her dad, Ralph, also played a major role with his talent in carpentry. Colleen's mom, Connie, was also there to offer support through her cooking skills, running those last minute errands for parts, and her sense of humor. Just a guess, but you're wanting to know what they made! Old ... Read more
