After Thanksgiving Leftover Challenge and Fellowship
What are you doing with the leftovers from your Thanksgiving Dinner? We've invited a few friends over to accept the challenge of repurposing their leftovers instead of throwing them away. We'll let you know what they came up with.
While recovering from the damage we received during hurricane Irma and clean up from the debris, we cancelled our farm open house. Since then, the 1890 Extension Service of South Carolina State University asked us to participate in their fall farm workshop , including a tour, and asked if our homestead would be featured. We agreed and are pleased to showcase our new agricultural practices.
This free event will feature a workshop at the community auditorium in the St. Helena Library Branch, 9:30-12:15. During that time agricultural information will be presented by Farm Extension Service agents, and agricultural relates organizations. Lunch, provided by 1890 Extension, will be served at 12:30-1:00. After lunch, the workshops end and everyone the library and drive to Morning Glory Homestead where the farm tour begins.
At Morning Glory, attendees will see our seasonal high tunnel, a.k.a. hoop house, the drip irrigation system, farm machinery, compost system, pollinator garden plot, new mushroom areas, bee hive, poultry set up, our biosecurity station and more.
Please RSVP so we will know how many people to expect, especially if you would like to join us for lunch. Email us at
FYI, our biosecurity station will be used on the tour. If you come to the farm expect to participate in the biosecurity boot/shoe wash station. All visitors must participate to enter the farm, this is for our safety as well as each visitor.
