Friday began with a presentation on edible plants by a college professor. Most of the group went on a hike about an hour away, but some of us opted to remain on campus for our activities.
We began with a tour of the campus organic gardens.
|All the above pictures are of the garden.|
This is the day that the battery in the camera died, just about at this point.:-( Therefore, I am not able to show you pictures of the new Field House (never had one of those before) or our trip to Glade Spring for lunch at the Whistlepig Bistro. Glade Spring is on the edge of a revitalization effort and a nice, welcoming new library is a great addition. Portions of this small community received a great deal of damage from a tornado on April 27, 2011, so it is good to see such positive signs of rebuilding.
There is still more to share with you about this event, and that will be coming up in the next post.
Thank you for reading. I appreciate your comments.
