What's New at Hancock's Resolution

One of the important things to remember about a farm is that there is always something to repair. This year as we reopen you may notice the new driveway. The roof has been repaired. There is a reforestation area started. The lavender that survived has been replanted and new plants have been added.

The Docent Training is open to anyone who shows up. I am open to suggestions of presenters and ideas of how to approach the topics.
