The Country Life Center is back!

The water boil advisory was lifted from Country Life Center and surrounding area on Friday, June 15. Activities at the farm have resumed as scheduled, including Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) delivery, Kids Cooking Class, and Friday lunch and dinner. Thank you for your support and patience during the past 3 weeks.

You can help us recover from our forced shut-down even more quickly by coming out for Friday lunch and dinner, signing up for our CSA program, or making a tax-deductible contribution. Just click on any of the links and email one of our staff for help. Thank you!
