Today we held FFA ( Future Farmers of America) agricultural day. We hosted schools from Abingdon, Holston, Patrick Henry, Northwood, Castlewood, Lebanon, Virginia High and Radford. They were shown how much living conditions have changed in the cabin, the sawmill, blacksmith shop, threshing and hay press, the fire pit and cane press for sorghum making, the cistern water system for watering the community gardens and Percheron horses. What a great group of young people.
