March 2008

Spring is arriving at Turtle Rock Farm. We have several baby calves scampering around. The bulbs are popping up and we are eager to dig in the soil.

We have planted 50 cypress trees, 50 red bud trees, 50 sand plum bushes, 3 persimmon trees, 3 kiwi trees and 8 raspberry bushes on the farm this spring.

Today, the Billings Elementary Students completed the gardens at the school. They have done a fabulous job and we are all anxiously awaiting the time they can eat the vegetables they are growing.

Today, Pat (pictured on the right) was ordained as a United Methodist Deaconess, which is a lay person commissioned to a lifetime of ministry in the areas of love, justice and service in the world. Her Deaconess appointment is doing ministries of ecospirituality and environmental justice at Turtle Rock Farm. (That was also her birthday, but we won’t say which one.) We are very proud of her!
