A Place to Play

Support helps to build a new place to play

     Our new pavilion is now complete thanks to support from the Greeneville Morning and Noon Rotary Clubs, Roy Darnell and his construction team and several generous donors.
     We envision the space serving as headquarters for Farm Day Camps as well as an outdoor classroom space for participants in the Farm & Food Teen Training Program. It already served as a space for volunteers to stay dry while building easels for the Lexicon of Sustainability
     The dedication ceremony will take place April 5. We will be placing plaques on beams with the names of our pillars of support.

The Farm Day Camp Challenge is still on!

Are there 100 current, future or former
Farm Day Campers out there willing to give $10?
