Community "Work" day was FUN!

Community Work Day 2012 the best Cultural Crossroads has ever had! In addition to public officials and business support, over 50 volunteers came out to help the Farm and Cultural Crossroads, during our annual spring cleaning event.

We strive to unite the community through the arts, and the community showed us they support that mission by showing up with smiles and work gloves. We are so very appreciative of our volunteers and our supporters!

Volunteers included Piney Hills Master Gardeners, Girl Scout Troop 1327, church groups, Glenbrook students, families and individuals.

James Madden of Madden Contracting repaired the parking lot and Police Juror Jerri Lee brought snacks and cake for volunteers.

The Farm looks amazing thanks to everyone’s hard work- although it doesn't really feel like work when the volunteers have so much fun! Everyone, especially the children, love to paint murals around the farm- which is a coveted "chore" each year.

Other chores completed included the planting of several gardens, weeded beds, painted props, and others.

There is a not only a job for everyone at the Farm, but there is also a place. The Farm is for the whole community and it was wonderful to see so much support from volunteers across the community. We cant say thank you enough!

Now the Farm is ready for the line up of spring events including, the Young Women's Service Club Community Easter Egg Hunt, The Piney Hills Trails to Trellis Garden Tours and ChickenStock.
