Sustainability

Community Description:

2014 promises to be a breakout year for the community. We have two new houses going up. One is a large pole barn/residence and the other is a tradition log home. As the national housing market improves, interest in the the community increases. A recent segment on NPR about development supported agriculture helped me define exactly what we are doing here. Instead of golf courses , people are choosing developments that have food production built in. At our farm/community, Green Bridge Farm, the produce is also organic!
