Construction Progress Continues at the Agriculture Park

The Agriculture Park has been humming the last few weeks, and major progress has been made.  Almost all of the base layer for the market pavilion pad is down and much of the grading has been complete!   Check out this video and pictures of the recent changes.

The future CCUA production plot has also seen some action.  The spring cover crop has been tilled under and the site seeded to a diverse mix of fall-winter cover crops that should be popping up over the coming weeks.

Sad news on our time-lapse camera project...  Not long after grading really took off, the power supply to our camera and controller was lost.  We have been scrambling to get a new power supply out there to start capturing photos again.  A big thank you to Dogwood Solar for loaning us solar panel to get the camera back up and operating.   More photos/videos from this camera will be shared soon!

The stage is set for some MAJOR changes to the Agriculture Park this summer/fall.  After 3.5 years of planning, design, and fundraising the construction of many items are now underway!
