THINGS ARE HAPPENING!!!
Here is our little green house - well, partially green house! We need to finish the paint, create the plant beds, build a fan system, more compost bins, wrap it up etc.; I'm sure all of our imaginations and visions will continue to expand as we journey through our first attempt at a project like this. There will be several more parts to piece in before our home of tasty fruits and veggies is complete! My mama Sheri and step father Tommy wanted to make sure everyone felt more than welcome to join in or stop by anytime. Shauna- my mom wanted to pass on a thank you for being the spark!
I will blog my finding on heart and liver health from the newsletter in the next day or two. XOXO Anna"
