On May 1, 2015, we planted a currant vineyard in collaboration with our friends from the Long Spoon Collective. Our goal was to eliminate a large tract of lawn and establish a sustainable resource to utilize and share with the Long Spoon Collective and community beyond. Over 80 red, white and black varieties of currant bushes were planted covering approximately a half acre on our western slope. We also planted 5 fruit trees augmenting our small orchard of plum, apple, peach and now paw paw trees. We will continue to explore and develop similar projects that will create more sustainable resources on the property.
