The City's agritourism center, named after late Councilwoman Patti Johnson, is still very much at the start of its journey.
Our garden areas are very much in their infancy, and we hope that in a few years, a lush mix of colorful plants, butterflies, and birds will be making the farm their home alongside the small number of traditional farm animals on site.
We look forward to adding programming to the farm for those interested in raising their own backyard poultry, starting their own compost or worm bin, or preserving the bounty of their gardens. As we grow, we anticipate a peppering of animal shows, seasonal celebrations and just-for-fun events. Those who visit will notice that we'll always be a work in progress - some structures may come and go, some areas of the grounds may be dug up, some plants may move around. And yes, even the animals may change occasionally as nature runs its course. We hope that the farm will be an asset to our students as well as to the larger community as a place to discover, learn, and grow.
