February 9, 2019 - Thanks to all who came out to help Build-A-Bed at our new HGH Veterans Memorial Garden. Thanks to Raising Roots Farm. What a wonderful family. We appreciate each and every one of you that worked hard today to achieve our dream. The support today was unbelievable! Marcus and Renee (Founder/Co-Founder) have been very blessed these last 4 years. Thanks to our Volunteers and Board Members that have been dedicated to continuing the Legacy of Fred D Abernethy. This is a new chapter for our organization. Our TEAM looks forward to the Grand Opening for our Veterans Memorial Garden.  As yet we can't disclose the location but we will be able to do so by late spring. It is our hope that eventually we will be able to conduct some agritourism on the site.
