Let’s Plant!

A week ago I asked for suggestions for types of flowers, plants, and trees to be featured at The Church and the Farm. I received a lot of amazing responses and even learned about some that I didn’t know existed. I’m really looking forward to incorporating all of the suggestions into the grounds of the property.

Matthew 5:3” “Woe to the... read more
