They Came in Droves: Farm Tour at Hope Grows

As part of the Georgia Organics conference program on Friday, a tour bus loaded with 45 people headed out to our farm to check out what we've been up to for the past two years. They came in droves (pig joke--Google it) to hear our story, to look at our ramshackle farm innovations (ramshackle on purpose of course)...

...they came to witness us gesturing this way and that...

What a culminating moment for the struggles and joys of the last two years. I thought a lot about Elliott's dad, Mike McGann. He would have been proud to see that bus pull up to the farm, to see people come to learn about a dream we've given roots and wings.

  1. Hey, forget that Anon. This is really Elliott's dad. And I can prove it. Elliott has 3 birth marks on his back and if you connect them it forms a line that points to true North. Congrats to Hope Grows Farm on their Second Anniversary. Mike.
