The winter months have been busy at Avalon Farms. Getting things cleaned up from last season, which includes the office (ugh!), is a chore but we feel better when it's done. Not everything we did was routine, however. A new high tunnel was completed and another is on its way, the latest one cost shared with NRCS funds. Norma and Jenny spent most Fridays at the Bronson Hospital Winter market making new friends. We hosted several tours at the farm, which are always fun, but the most interesting by far was through a program for homeless veterans who had completed a work training program for jobs in agriculture. They were from the Detroit, Flint and Lansing areas. Seemed like a really great group of guys, well trained to work in the greenhouse industry. Wish we could hire them all!
