Garden Workshop, Great Day!!!!

A great day here today as we held our first Beginners Garden Workshop!!! I will have to say the weather was a major answer to prayer! We had sunshine, not too much wind and it was a tad cool but not unbearable. We had a total of 44 men, women and children. A good group for the first time around. Terry did a great job sharing and passing on his "trial and error" of gardening knowledge and hopefully it will be helpful to those that were here. Bethany's bread and soap sold well, Anna's cookies were grabbed up and the little fellows sold a few Cokes! I say it was successful day, and praise the Lord for His being in it all. We met new families, had a fun fellowship with already known families and look forward to keeping in touch with ones that are seeking a similar set up with farm life and growing your own stuff. I know there are many of you that expressed interest in coming but plans did not quite work and some of you were praying specifically for us today....thank you so much, the Lord heard and now lets make sure and thank Him for his goodness to us today! We have a special treat for those that could not attend, we had John-Clay (he videoed Joel's Journey) here videoing with plans to make a Garden/Farm DVD!! We are going to give you an opportunity to pre-order one at $10, saving two dollars off the regular price of $12, plus $3 shipping. We'll get that set up here soon where you can do that. It will of course take a bit of time to get it all finalized, editing, music and duplicated. Now here are a few pictures of the day.....enjoy!

I am soooo tired.....going to get a tiny nap in!!!!

Glad the day was a great sucess. Loved looking at the pics. Thank you for sharing with us.

I hope I did not scare you with my long email I sent you. Sometimes I tend to ramble.

I think of you lots and I lift you up to the Lord.

I so appreciate being able to peek into your lives~

So glad to hear about the good weather and the great turn out! I look forward to watching the workshop on DVD :)

Also, it's wonderful that some of your children had little entrepreneurial opportunities, as well!

I am so sorry I missed it. It looks like a great time was had by all. I just might have to order me one of those dvd's. Then atleast I can see what I missed!
